The Artful Experience

Our hunger for the experience of art has never been stronger. Despite the energy and ingenuity that went into online alternatives, nothing can replace the living presence of art; virtual exhibitions, online viewing rooms and digital presentations will only ever be illusory, unsatisfying substitutes for the ‘real thing’. Art is a material and sensual activity that happens in real space and time and we have been starved of physical artworks and art experiences. When the galleries in Paris re-opened their doors after the deconfinement we couldn’t wait to go and explore the shows we missed and discover the new shows that were opening. Have a look through some of our favourites in the slideshow above, and let us tempt you to visit them IRL!
