New York is filled with artist & curator-run spaces. Paris has less. As the French state generously supports the arts small spaces quickly become institutionalized – a good thing. But as I have a knack for finding things I found a couple interesting spots for for you to keep your eyes on. Here goes:
Upon leaving Palais de Tokyo we ran into resident curator Gallien Dejéan who is also an art-critic and one of the founders of Treize, an artist/curator run space in Paris. I didn’t have the chance to visit their space but he had lots of exciting projects in the pipe-line.
Shanaynay is another curator-run space in the trendy quarter of Bellevue. At their opening I chatted to one of the founders, Romain Chenais, who recently opened High Art, a gallery on the same street. Chenais had all the traits of a great gallerist knowledgable, witty, and, of course, attractive.
