Following the example of Berlin or Brussels, Paris, taking advantage of the dynamism of its offer, launched its Gallery Weekend under the impetus of Marion Papillon. the last edition brought together more than 5000 people around 31 participating galleries.
For 2018 there are 44 associated galleries, 40% more, a new visual identity (Matter of Fact agency), 49 proposed appointments and different routes and appointments (hence the idea of circumvolution suggested by the graphics of posters and other media).

Here is a preview of the must-see weekend of May 26th and 27th
(it remains to be seen whether the initiative will change the image of galleries among the general public, often perceived as not very accessible despite recent efforts)

Organizing team: Marion Papillon, Anne-Sarah Benichou, Philippe Jousse, Nathalie Vallois, Séverine Waelchli (Thaddaeus Ropac), Marie Delas.
