Galerie du Jour – Agnès B.
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
‘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.
