Three Galleries to Visit on Your Next Paris Trip
Forum Gallery Director Robert Fishko presides over one of New York's leading modern and contemporary art galleries. When he is not tending to acquisitions and sales at his gallery, Robert Fishko can often be found visiting museums and galleries in France.
Many art lovers visit the Louvre when they travel to Paris, but there are numerous other places to view modern and contemporary art in Paris. Consider the following less-known galleries the next time you are in the city.
-Galerie Xippas. Xippas, located in the Marais area, exhibits contemporary art from around the world. It has showrooms featuring art from Switzerland, Uruguay, and Greece as well as domestic works. The venue itself includes architectural features of note such as a transparent staircase.
-La Maison Rouge. This contemporary gallery only holds temporary exhibitions, a policy which allows it to feature a wide range of artists. In the tradition of the French cafe culture, it also includes a pop-up cafe space three times a year.
-The Marian Goodman Gallery. This is considered to be one of the most important galleries in Paris, but the entrance is always closed. After pressing the doorbell, visitors can see works by prestigious contemporary artists on the main floor, and then visit the basement area to view films about the featured artists.
