With all the ice cream to eat and parks to play in, sometimes art can come low on a summer list of things to do in Paris. But it shouldn’t. As always in Paris, there’s an exceptional line-up of big-hitting exhibitions and smaller shows in galleries across the city – unmissable for art lovers, ideal for anyone on greyer days. Discover new galleries, new artists, and probably have a good few coffees or a bit of window-shopping on your way.

So read on for our selection of the best summer exhibitions in Paris. And have a ball!
