City Art InsiderInterested in learning about the contemporary art world while discovering the most important actors and the more local French players in the Parisian art scene?  This gallery walk is a great place to start....

The Marais is a vibrant quarter dating from the 1600s, and home to many outstanding Parisian and international galleries, museums, as well as trendy boutiques and restaurants.  Our visit will take you to large, contemporary art spaces and hard-to-find courtyard galleries. You'll learn about the history and architecture of the neighborhood and truly get a feel for the Marais art scene.

About the instructor: Caroline Etter, art consultant, historian of art, and friend to both collectors and artists, has been immersed in the Paris art scene for 20 years.  After graduating with a degree in 20th-century decorative arts from the Sorbonne, she started her career working at the Villa Médicis in Rome and the Bibliothèque nationale de France.  Since then she’s been a curator, a journalist and a gallery manager.  She has created her own company helping private as well as corporate clients understand and buy contemporary art.
