ANN: Art Basel Conversations: What’s Next for the French Art Market? (Paris, 20 Oct 2022, 17:00-18:00)

In recent years, Paris has once again become a stronghold of the international art market. The arrival of international galleries, the development of Avenue Matignon as a new artistic artery, and the opening of several major international foundations testify to this phenomenon. What are the reasons for this new attractiveness? Is Paris on its way to regaining its former aura? What role might it play in the market of tomorrow?
