Fridays, 25 March, 1, 8, 15 April and 13 May, 2016 In a continuation of our popular series, we explore the contemporary art scene in Paris through weekly afternoon excursions. Each outing teaches us more about contemporary art appreciation and collecting, as we discover a gallery neighborhood, artists to collect, an international art fair or an auction.

Cost: €190 (five-part series); Pro-rata option: €45

As always, we intersperse works we know you’ll enjoy with those that will push your boundaries, so we can appreciate the ever-changing frontiers of art. Because we have so many repeat students, we now approach the classes somewhat like a Socratic dialogue, as we pursue the answer to the question, “What is great art, now?”
If you’re a novice, you’ll come away from these interactive sessions with a good sense of how art collecting works. If you’re already actively collecting you’ll come away with ideas for artists to watch, and collect, right now.
