An Insider View of London and Paris Art Scene during Frieze and Paris+

The rich history of London's art museums and galleries is matched only by the city's innovative contemporary art scene. This is your opportunity to experience it up close, in the company of experts, at the Frieze Art Fair during the all-important fall season.We will focus on the best London has to offer, from insider experiences at Tate Modern and Royal Academy, to exclusive private collection visits and tours of galleries in influential neighborhoods such as Mayfair and the East End. Before New York and London became the international art world centers, Paris was the city of art. In recent years, especially with the advent of Brexit, it has moved quickly to regain that throne. Visit Paris during the height of its fall art season—the week surrounding the most anticipated new contemporary art fair, Paris +, and let our experts distill the best of the city's endless offerings of contemporary art. Behind the scenes visits to the Centre Pompidou, the Fondation Louis Vuitton, art galleries, and artist studios will be complemented by opportunities to enjoy the city's unparalleled cuisine and culture. You will be accompanied at lunches, cocktails, and dinners by some of the most fascinating art luminaries London and Paris attract, including artists, curators, collectors, and museum directors. 

In creating this trip for you, we have focused on what we believe are the most important aspects of a memorable art experience - first class art, hospitality and service. We aim to engage you in discussion about the art as you bond with old and new friends and explore engaging works.  This trip will be led by Artful's European art educator, Jenn Ellis. Jenn is London-based Swiss curator, founder and patron guided by the belief that art is one of the most critical mediums by which to communicate and investigate important cultural topics. Milena Berman, our Experience Director, will also support this trip as a local French resident with deep connections in Paris. Their global art networks will benefit our guests as contacts from the art world join us throughout the trip as experts sharing their insider knowledge.
