Founded in 2004 by Cneai, Salon Light became over a few years an unmissable rendezvous for micro-publishers and artist’s publication in Paris. After exporting the concept to Vermelho gallery in Sao Paulo and following the great success of Salon Light 9 at Palais de Tokyo in 2012, Salon Light continues to unite a moving scene of artists, authors, independent publishers and composers. Books, magazines, objects, LP’s, catalogues or artist’s book, the publications are often limited editions, sometimes impossible to find in Paris, and are breaking new grounds while creating new networks in the art and publishing worlds. Performances and meetings with professionals and artists are also a key part of the event. Free for the publishers and the public, it’s accessible to all and offers visibility to a still somehow unknown field.
