When? June 2 2016
What? Art galleries open late for an evening of diverse cultural festivities; happens twice a year.
Where? The Marais
Returning for its 7th biannual edition, Les Jeudis Arty involves 30 galleries in the Marais unusually opening their doors late at night. The project was initiated by a group of young women, who have carefully selected around 80 artists to help bring the night to life, with private viewings, special events and meet-and-greets with the artists themselves. Most of the events will be free this time around, and the public can move between the galleries up until 10pm (private guided tours will set you back between €13-€26). Later on in the evening, the party continues with live performances at the Carreau du Temple, in partnership with the Champs Elysées Film Festival.
