This year, the organisers of Art Élysées are part of the International Organization "2015 Year of Light" which aims to tell a wider audience about the use of light in art. Upon entry to Art Élysées, visitors are welcomed into the light of the fair hall by light work The invisible are limits ... by artist Yves Charnay.

The exhibition "Art Elysées-Light Project" parallels the work of Eric Michel and Pierre Marie Lejeune, both with very different approaches to using light as a medium.
