LO/A (Library of Arts) (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Art galleries, hip restaurants and concept stores are rapidly multiplying in the ‘haut Marais’ around République – so although the Rue Notre-Dame de Nazareth is still pretty shabby around the edges, the LO/A (Library of Arts) is just one of a series of shiny new openings along its length. Owners Jeanne Holsteyn and Maxime Dubois are passionate about counter-cultures, visual arts and music, and use the space to share their discoveries and to collaborate with artists. Somewhere between an art bookshop and a gallery, LO/A always has something for creative industry professionals and simple art lovers.
The collection’s theme changes every three months – a country, a city, an artistic trend or an era – explored through a meticulous selection of new and old books, photography, design, fashion, architecture, films and vinyl, and a playlist. There’s also a permanent range of indie magazines and fanzines, and a constant stream of exhibitions, pop-ups and installations. Prices are affordable, and all the events are free – it’s well worth stopping by for a browse and a chat.
