Paratissima is a vibrant artistic event dedicated to promotion of works by young artists and creative individuals, and experimentation of dynamic, interactive forms of performance for a wide audience.

Last year, Paratissima attracted 606 artists and 119,510 registered visitors from all over the world.
An active curator, Shi Jian is passionate about communication between eastern and western art and cultures. He has extensive experience in managing and facilitating a variety of cultural and artistic activities, including art exhibitions, performance, fashion shows, and academic seminars. The first Asian Project, with a unique focus on contemporary pursuit of traditional Chinese aesthetics and philosophy, will appear in the eleventh edition of Paratissima, 4-8 November 2015.
The Paratissima Europe-Asia Artists Residency Program will be launched in 2016.
