Artprice moves into top gear with its world-famous Contemporary Art Museum headquarters, “L'Organe”
In 1997, Artprice installed its HQ in the middle of a Contemporary Art Museum, “L'Organe” (9000 m²). Among its activities, the Museum runs the world-famous Demeure du Chaos / “The Abode of Chaos” according to The New York Times. (See Artprice's Reference Documentation submitted each year to France's Financial Markets Authority, the AMF).
The 2017 attendance figures for Artprice's Museum HQ speak for themselves:
The Demeure du Chaos / Musée L'organe is the most visited Contemporary Art Museum in France's Rhône Alpes Region, with 140,000 visitors per year, including to its Borderline Biennale event.
Google ranks L'Organe Museum of Contemporary Art as the highest-rated Art Museum in Lyon (data from 28 August 2017).
Likewise, Facebook's ranking of the Top-25 cultural destinations in the City of Lyon has placed the Demeure du Chaos / Musée L'Organe in pole position for the last five years running – confirmed again this year in its N°48 September ranking. The Demeure du Chaos / Musée L'organe is closely followed by 475,000 subscribers with an average weekly publication audience reach of 4.5 million and by far the highest engagement rate. (full and certified Facebook data).

Since it opened in 2006, the Demeure du Chaos / Musée L'organe (under French Law a “registered visitable establishment with museum characteristics” has welcomed 1.34 million of whom 25% from outside France.
Its global popularity is beyond any doubt, as confirmed by the following statistic: since the publication in 2013 of its bilingual book "Opus IX of the Demeure du Chaos/ Abode of Chaos " (504 pages, digital and paper format (30×30) and free online at the world-leading issuu.com), the work has been the subject of 37.4 million ‘online impressions' (a fact legally certified by MAMET PONS solicitors in 2016). This volume of ‘online impressions' is rivalled by very few French cultural institutions or publishers.
The Museum's circuit covers a territory of 9,000 m² with 5,400 artworks in various disciplines. It includes 1,200 monumental sculptures created by thierry Ehrmann, Artprice's founder and CEO and a visual artist for 35 years. In 2014 the Abode of Chaos organised a retrospective show entitled Thirty years of Sculpture by thierry Ehrmann which alone attracted 180,000 visitors.
Artprice's Contemporary Art HQ is a world-renowned phenomenon which for the last 18 years (1999/2017) has inspired more than 3,708 written and audio-visual articles in the world's most prestigious media channels. According to the Anglo-American press, although very different, Artprice's HQ rivals some of the emblematic, ambitious and futuristic head offices in Silicon Valley, which in themselves represent a superb vector of mass communication.
The latest example of this media enthusiasm was two months of filming by Arte France / Germany (July and August 2017) at the Abode of Chaos in the framework of two full-length feature films for prime-time diffusion. Following Artprice's collaboration with Arte France / Germany on 9 episodes entitled the “History of Art” in 2016, Artprice will again be working with Arte France / Germany to create 9 episodes on Forbidden Art (“Art interdît”).
A recent meeting of Artprice's Board of Directors voted to upgrade the exploitation of the Abode of Chaos / Musée L'Organe by organising regularly quarterly meetings with world-famous artists, one-off artistic events and symposiums focused primarily on Art and Law as of September 2017 (Artprice has been publishing legal and sociological studies that have become references for the Art Market for 20 years)
Artprice has long been preparing exhibitions of the most recent artistic disciplines in which science, technology and art underpin a dynamic OTC Art Market. It is precisely to this OTC Art Market – emerging on all 5 continents with remarkable speed and flooding the traditional Market – that Artprice has recently turned its full attention.
See Actusnews press release: Artprice takes a major stake in the OTC Art Market which generates a volume of transactions roughly 7 to 9 times higher than the traditional art market:
This year Artprice will launch its famous Global Contemporary Art Market Report at its Abode of Chaos / Contemporary Art Museum HQ in early October 2017, with its standard preview of the key data via its exclusive partner, AFP.
Among other initiatives, the Contemporary Art Museum and Artprice HQ will welcome artists showing at the 2017 Lyon Contemporary Art Biennial which begins shortly. Artprice was the principal sponsor of this event when Lyon was bidding to host France's only biennial art fair (founded by André Malraux).
At the same time as London's Frieze, Paris's FIAC and the Paris Photo art fairs, the Contemporary Art Museum at Artprice's Abode of Chaos HQ will be hosting a number of artistic events, notably in its famous Bunker (720 m3) that was exhibited in front of the Grand Palais (in Paris) as a monumental sculpture for the Triennial Art Fair, La Force de l'art, in 2006.
Since 1999, Serveur Group – Artprice's parent company – has provided the Organe Contemporary Art Museum with all the requisite avant-gardist museum facilities as well as all the Internet infrastructures (including a clean-room dedicated to the Museum) to host artistic events and receive world-famous artists in a variety of different workshops.
These artists will be able to create and perform in situ with live transmission on social networks and Network TV. Over the years Artprice has become a dominant player through these channels both as the world leader in Art Market information and as a Contemporary Art Museum at the Demeure du Chaos / Abode of Chaos.
Artprice's staff, art historians, editors and researchers will all be involved in these international events. With its unique role as world leader in Art Market information and as a Museum of Contemporary Art, Artprice clearly represents a cutting edge art institution in Europe.
By receiving artists in residency and hosting exceptional events, Artprice is moving into another dimension in which the art world's projectors will be focused on its HQ at the world famous Demeure du Chaos / Abode of Chaos Contemporary Art Museum. Artprice will inevitably benefit from the resulting international media exposure, but also from the individual communication strategies of the artists it hosts, via all media channels, including of course the social networks with their ‘viral' diffusion potential.
Therefore, without any further industrial or property investments, Artprice is creating an unprecedented physical / digital publicity platform for Contemporary Art that will gain permanent exposure all over the planet.

Thierry Ehrmann, the man behind The Abode of Chaos dixit "The New York Times", an artist and the founder of Artprice, is the mouthpiece for scandal and discloses the workings of the most striking controversies in contemporary art. And scandal sells. 9 episodes are online: http://www.arte.tv/guide/en/weekly-highlight
