trength through unity… The old proverb still holds for a number of Paris art galleries that have decided to unite their energies and networks
during a "gallery weekend", the very first of its kind to be staged in the French capital. Since Berlin launched the formula ten years ago, these events have spread like wildfire to Warsaw (Warsaw Gallery Weekend), Vienna (Vienna Gallery Weekend), and Brussels (Brussels Art Days, now preparing for the seventh edition), Chicago, Dallas, New York and, more recently, Atlanta.

In contrast, others – though they are rare – are focusing on young artists, like the Isabelle Gounod gallery, which is showing paintings by Jérémy Liron (b. 1980), and Eva Hober, with the 30-something Pauline Bastard.
