In order to relieve some of the pressure you’ve built up at work during the week, it’s important to have some fun. A small visit to a modern art gallery can be a good way to do this. These galleries display hundreds of works of the greatest modern artists. There are currently more and more of such galleries all over the world, but especially in big cities like Paris. However, it’s somehow difficult to decide where to go first, especially if it is your first time. It is therefore important to discover the most famous modern art galleries in Paris.
The Galerie de Perrotin and Estades !
The Galerie de Perrotin is currently considered a must in the rue de Turenne. Perrotin first exhibited in the Halles district of Paris over 20 years ago. Today, it has 7,000 square metres of exhibition space located between Paris, Hong Kong, Tokyo and New York. It is in Paris, however, that you will see the latest exhibitions of modern artists such as Bernard Frize, Sophie Calle or Takashi Murakami. In the same genre, you will also find Estades, a gallery that has been specialising in modern art for over 30 years.
The gallery of Georges-Philippe and Nathalie Vallois !
Georges-Philippe and Nathalie Vallois are a couple who decided to create their own gallery in 1987 in the rue de Seine. The gallery is located in the same area as the modern art specialists and chic antique dealers.
There, you will see mostly works that are considered as “new realists”. Among the celebrities who exhibit their work in this gallery are Jacques Villeglé and Jean Tinguely and John DeAndrea. Foreign artists who are active in the world of modern art are also exhibited here.
The Loevenbruck and Loeve & Collet Gallery !
Loevenbruk is a gallery located in Sant-Germain. It has a glass façade that catches the eye when you walk past. Founded by Hervé Loevenbruck in 2001, the gallery exhibits artists who have proven themselves to be the best, such as Dewar & Gicquel and the Prix Marcel. The gallery’s founder also teamed up with Stéphane Corréard, a leading art critic, to build an exhibition space nearby, Loeve & Collet. The latter has now doubled in size and do weekly exhibitions.
