Marais gallery Xippas has shown both emerging and successful contemporary French artists since 1990, and it’s probably one of the biggest in the capital space-wise, at 800 square metres. Visitors can expect painting, photography and sculpture as well as installations and video, spread out over two floors. The first floor hosts temporary exhibitions, while downstairs are the resident artists’ works. Gallery owner and trader Renos Xippas has galleries in name all over the world, from Athens to Montevideo via Geneva – in Paris, he’s shown the figurative paintings of Belgian artist Farah Atassi, photograoher Vik Muniz and the sound installations of French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot.
