city of lights, City of Art

Before New York and London became the international art world power centers they are now, Paris was the city of art. In recent years, especially with the advent of Brexit, it has moved to regain that throne. Visit Paris during one of the heights of its fall art season—the week surrounding the top contemporary photography fair, Paris Photo—and let our experts distill the best of the city's endless offerings of modern and 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 charming neighborhood culture.
