Vous voulez découvrir le meilleur de l'art à Paris ?
Start by exploring our unique art tours...
For everyone who asks what they just "have" to see in Paris this spring, here's our shortlist. Heavy on new venues and exhibits, there's something here to appeal to each of our guests.
May is definitely the month for our collectors in Paris: beginning collectors get their annual opportunity to train their eyes and acquire emerging artists at Salon de Montrouge (May 5-June 3). Meanwhile, our more seasoned European collectors are expected for Choices Collectors Weekend (May 29-31), which includes special exhibits in the galleries. We are on standby to personally escort you to both these events.
It starts on May 9th, one month earlier than usual to match the opening date of the Universal exhibition in Milan. The French Pavillion promises to be transformed by excellent artist Celeste Boursier-Mougenot, of living art fame. Let us know if you'd appreciate having an Insider show you around.
We are also preparing special visits to introduce you to the new trend of art displayed in fabulous Paris apartments instead of galleries. We're sure you'll love that way of seeing art -- it's quite a selective and personal approach.
city|art insider clients enjoy highly customized visits to international art fairs in Paris, and further afield.
We've taken the time to talk to the curators and critics before your arrival, so we know what you need to see to be au courant -- new names, movements and styles, as well as significant works by established artists.
Combined with your art appreciation or collecting objectives, we take you on a unique visit ensuring you connect with the artworks, artists and galleries that resonate with you.
We want you to have a firm handle on the overall context of the art market by the time you leave. That means sharing information about artists' recent sales, and how they compare to the pricing of works on the floor, and how individual artists are expected to perform in the future.
