Paris Gallery Weekend 2018
25–26 May 2018
Since 2014, Paris Gallery Weekend has established itself as an annual landmark event for art lovers and collectors, whether based in France or abroad.
For its fifth edition – held the 25th, 26th, and 27th of May – the 2018 Paris Gallery Weekend is proud to host a total of 44 galleries, representing a 40% increase in the number of participants since 2017. This significant growth testifies to the dynamism and rising influence of the event and is a result of 8 new galleries and the return of 16 others.
Throughout the weekend, visitors, art lovers and collectors can discover dedicated events and exhibitions organized by the participating galleries. More than 41 free-access rendez-vous are on
the itinerary, offering multiple festive and participatory opportunities to meet artists, to exchange ideas in talks and conferences, to discover fresh perspectives in exhibitions, openings, concerts and performances, and to celebrate together at brunches, cocktails, and aperitifs.
With its 44 participating galleries in 2018, Paris Gallery Weekend represents the diversity of type and of geography of Parisian galleries: from the newest to the most established and the most imposing to the most intimate, whether situated in the Marais, in Saint-Germaindes-Prés, in the 8th or 18th arrondissements, in Belleville or in the Haut-Marais.

Since September of 2017, she has been supported by a board composed of gallery owners Anne-Sarah Bénichou, Philippe Jousse, Nathalie Vallois, and Séverine Waelchli of Galerie Thaddeus Ropac.
