  • WICE Members & Their Guests

At the bottom of the Champs-Elysées, close from Grand Palais and the most luxurious hotels, the Matignon Avenue area concentrates most of the biggest international and French auction houses in Paris (Artcurial, Christie's, Sohteby's...).

A few renowned contemporary art galleries have also chosen to locate there. During our visit, we’ll see hot artworks and furniture for sale in the galleries and in the auction houses. If you have questions about today’s unpredictable art market, we’ll be happy to comment and give you our art insider insights. A small walk to the monumental bucket of tulips close-by will be another occasion to express your opinion.
