With the opening of new public and private venues for artistic creation every year, new galleries, and a calendar of major exhibitions of upcoming talents alongside retrospectives of renowned artists, Paris is a leading capital for international contemporary creation. Contemporary art can be seen at key annual events like the FIAC (international contemporary art fair), the exhibition ‘Monumenta’ or the Nuit blanche (a cultural all-nighter), the new Triennale (Triennial) and the very recent Biennale de Belleville (Belleville Biennial) but also throughout the year with exhibitions in major and more low-key galleries, art foundations and at smaller-scale venues. Today, artistic creation is booming and just waiting to be discovered!
