Here’s a Guide to Paris Art Galleries You’ll Adore

Paris is a city of many sides. From hidden flea markets and unique music haunts, to secret shopping arcades and undiscovered restaurants, there’s so much more to the French capital than the postcards tell us. Aside from these intriguing elements of local life, art is also alive in Paris.

Away from the famous galleries and museums where tourists flock, there are several lesser-known independent art galleries that house unique and distinctive pieces. Both well-established and up-and-coming artists showcase various works of contemporary art — photography, sculptures, animation, illustrations and paintings — in these galleries across the city. The buildings themselves are usually sights to behold too, with some striking, sculpturally experimental exteriors.
