‘We say gallery, but we could also say a place for showing the other faces and the side issues of things’ explained Agnès B. in November 1984, when she launched La Galerie du Jour a few steps from the Centre Pompidou. The designer and founder of the wildly successful eponymous label shows here anything that pleases her – painting, sculpture, contemporary art and tons of photography. Seydou Keiwta, Jean-Christian Bourcart and Massimo Vitali have all had shows here.

Since September 2000, the gallery has added a library – papered with press cuttings – where you can find all the gallery’s publications, catalogues of the artists who have exhibited here, reviews, books, videos and objets d’art. It's well worth a browse, if only to cast an eye over the publication directed by Agnès B. and art critic and exhibition curator Hans Ulrich Obrist, ‘Pointe d’Ironie’. Each edition is a carte blanche for a different artist.
