Un peu d'histoire ...

C'est en 1981, à l'occasion de l'ouverture de la galerie Ambre, que surgit l'idée de réunir autour de cette inauguration cinq à six collègues antiquaires en arts primordiaux et d'ainsi proposer au public les premières "Portes Ouvertes sur les arts non européens" au Sablon.

Le projet aboutit, succès à la clef... L'idée allait s'incruster au point d'entraîner d'autres galeries, belges et étrangères.

En 1988, un dépliant modeste matérialise ce ralliement d'antiquaires en constante progression, et trois ans plus tard, l'édition d'un premier catalogue témoigne du succès de cette association momentanée d'antiquaires mobilisés en vue d'un même objetif : promouvoir l'exceptionnelle richesse des arts premiers dont ils sont les ambassadeurs.

A parti de 1996, les antiquaires bruxellois invitèrent même en leurs locaux des collègues étrangers. Aujourd'hui, les galeries françaises, italiennes, espagnoles, anglaises, hollandaises et américaines se sont jointes à l'événement, lui conférant une dimension internationale.

La Brussels Non European Art Fair est devenue l'une des plus importantes manifestations d'arts non-européens, couvrant des secteurs aussi divers que l'art africain, l'art océanien, l'art indonésien, l'art précolombien ou encore l'art asiatique et

Les arts premiers au centre de Kaos
Le Journal des Arts - n° 220 - 9 septembre 2005
    
Le jeune parcours parisien Kaos s’est rapidement imposé comme le rendez-vous mondial incontournable des amateurs d’art primitif. Avec une quatrième édition encore enrichie.
Il aura fallu seulement deux années à Kaos-Parcours des mondes, à Paris à Saint-Germain-des-Prés, fief des arts primitifs, pour s’imposer. Calquée sur le modèle bruxellois de Bruneaf (Brussels non European Art Fair), Kaos est une manifestation à ciel ouvert réunissant des marchands spécialisés concentrés en un même quartier (soit exposant dans leurs murs, soit hébergés par d’autres galeries). Mais alors que Bruneaf est en perte de vitesse depuis quelques années, Kaos monte en puissance. Créé en 2002 sur une idée de Rik Gadella (fondateur entre autres du salon Paris Photo), ce rendez-vous parisien des amateurs d’arts premiers a accueilli la première année 21 galeries autour de l’axe de la rue de Seine, puis 40 participants en 2003. La formule décolle dès 2004 avec 51 exposants venus du monde entier et atteint déjà une renommée internationale. Cette dernière édition avait aussi montré les dérives de la réussite de Kaos : des marchands refusés avaient loué des espaces sur le parcours pour profiter du succès commercial généré par

Paris is for some years the worldwide capital of the market of the first Arts of Africa and of Oceania, strong of a tradition inherited from a colonial past and from an infatuation, at the beginning of last century, from artists as Picasso or Matisse for "Negro art". The opening of the museum of the quai Branly, unveiling of which provokes at the end of June a charged week, public sales - of which that announced exceptional of the collection Vérité on June 17th and 18th in Drouot - confirms this tendency.

For the expert Pierre Amrouche, "it is in Paris where there are most galleries specialised in First arts, it is in France where there are most collectors of first Arts, it is in France that the most important auctions of first Arts are held and it is in France that there will be so

But for Mrs de Sabran, "of 50 inpubliques 60 pc sales of Africain and Oceanian art in the world are made in Paris", remaining pre-Columbian art especially in the United States.

In 1950s, it was possible to find many objects at the price of 10 francs on the flea markets of Europe. The first objects to take value were those of the Benin because they were bronze, then came the fashion of objects to black patina of Ivory Coast, and those of Bakota of the Gabon plated by copper and by brass. The big statues were worth more expensive than the babies, while most often in Africa, if they are small it is to be able to hide them more easily because they have a particular importance.
