10 Gallery Shows to See in Paris During Art Basel’s Paris+

The big story in Paris this week will be the opening of the Hauser & Wirth, which is officially putting down roots in the French capital after operating in many other cities across the globe. But its arrival may belie the fact that Paris is already home to a flourishing gallery ecosystem, and has been for a long time, as blue-chip and emerging spaces continue to coexist, sometimes even in the same neighborhood.

Many of those galleries have received renewed attention in light of Paris+, the Art Basel fair that returns on Wednesday for its sophomore edition. Yet even before the fair’s arrival, Paris’s scene had been growing more sprawling, with the offerings extending far beyond the main Marais district and the edgier Belleville neighborhood to now include areas outside city limits like Romainville, where galleries like Jocelyn Wolff and Air de Paris continue to operate.

How might you navigate such a vast gallery network while in town for the fair? Below, a look at 10 of the most exciting Paris gallery shows to see this week.
