Paris Gallery Weekend
Édition 2019

Past: May 17 → 19, 2019

Over the course of its 5 previous editions, Paris Gallery Weekend marked itself as the Springtime “rendez-vous” for Paris and its art scene. The 6th edition of Paris Gallery Weekend will take place from Friday 17 May to Sunday 19 May 2019 and 48 galleries have already confirmed their participation so far (see list below).

In 2018, Paris Gallery Weekend attracted between 7,000 and 7,500 art lovers (+40% compared to the previous year), 30% of the identified collectors came from abroad and 70% of the participating galleries reported to have made sales.

This year, the Paris Gallery Weekend Board, alongside Marion Papillon (Founder of Paris Gallery Weekend, Galerie Papillon), Séverine Waelchli (Thaddeus Ropac Gallery) and Anne-Sarah Bénichou (Galerie A-S Benichou), welcomes three new members: Fabienne Leclerc (Galerie In Situ), Eric Dereumaux (Galerie RX) and Jérôme Poggi (Galerie Jérôme Poggi).

Paris Gallery Weekend aims to make better known the dynamism and diversity of the Parisian art scene.

The 2019 edition is characterized by the renewed participation of galleries from previous editions and major newcomers, a tailored program for international collectors, a large volunteer program insuring a more informative visitors experience, a series of openings, meetings with artists, performances, concerts, conferences, debates, brunches, drink receptions as well as the support of leading public and private institutions. In 2018, 30% of attended collectors came from abroad. This year, Paris Gallery Weekend reinforces its offer with a program of exclusive visits in museums and private homes that will allow them to meet Museum directors and curators as well as important French or Parisbased collectors. Simultaneously, Paris Gallery Weekend is implementing a vast public program that includes:

  • A larger number of guided tours within galleries, particularly those targeting companies, partners and Friends of Museums, including those in English.
  • A renewed partnership with SMARTIFY, a global platform for the discovery and sharing of art that instantly identifies, and explains, exhibited artworks.
  • Family friendly visits organized by the association ART KIDS Paris with a simple and fun educational approach.
  • A large-scale initiative involving the participation of volunteering students who will be present in galleries to welcome and inform visitors.
  • The rerun of the successful «PGW Treasure Hunt» which allows a winner to be offered a €2,000 voucher for the acquisition of a work of art in one of the participating galleries.

Paris Gallery Weekend enjoys the support of Parisian, national and international institutions: UNESCO (special visits to the building and UNESCO art collection during La Nuit des Musées and a screening of short films from the Opéra de Paris 3e Scène contemporary program); Centre Pompidou (private visits of the exhibition Galeries du XXe siècle dedicated to major Parisian art dealers which is particularly relevant to the Paris Gallery Weekend); Le Centre des Monuments Nationaux (with a gala dinner at the Conciergerie de Paris).

Paris Gallery Weekend is organized by CHOICES, an association founded and managed by the art dealer and gallery owner Marion Papillon in 2014.
