Les Jeudis Arty

An evening of art and live performance across thirty galleries in the Marais, Thursday November 3 2016


What? Les Jeudis Arty. Art galleries open late for an evening of diverse cultural festivities, which happens twice a year.

When? Thursday November 3 2016

Where? In thirty galleries around the Marais area et at Carreau du Temple for the Arty Party.

So you’ve heard of First Thursdays in London, where 150 galleries stay open until 9pm on the first Thursday of every month – complete with live installations and arty drinking sessions? Well, if not, Thursday November 3 is your lucky day. Les Jeudis Arty began in 2014 and this very Parisian contemporary art evening now takes place twice a year in the heart of the lively Marais area.

On Thursday November 3, expect a festive gathering and discussions with affiliated artists in over thirty galleries – proof that art is for everyone. For the more avid culture vultures, there are private guided tours for an extra charge (€13-25), as well as the opportunity to talk with emerging contemporary artists. The grand finale will be held at the Halle du Carreau du Temple with an Arty Party of DJ sets and live performances.
