Paris city has always been a sinonymous of art in all those many forms of expression.
Aside from Centre Pompidou or Le Laboratoire, there are iconic pioneers of art, such as Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac.
With such a wealth of public galleries, creative events and white spaces, no selection of the top 5 contemporary art galleries can be comprehensive.
Our selection includes a Paris’s contemporary art look through the main art galleries.
1. GALLERY DE CASSON
Designed by Alnoor to show off the ‘vintage’ work of the designers like Pierre Paulin, Olivier Mourgue and Michael Boyer. It presents a collection of furniture, selected by Guillaume de Casson, specialized in 20th century.
2. PERIMETER ART & DESIGN GALLERY
Open since 2004 this gallery has developed and promoted furniture and object design with a unique insight based in a humanist approach to the design object and practice, and a critical stance towards volatility of taste and homogenization of the design process.
3. YMER & MALTA GALLERY
Exhibiting unique design and limited edition works, since 2009, highlights new design talents and produces limited editions of furniture and design pieces. The gallery takes a young, fresh and dynamic approach, primarily following its own aesthetic.
