Paris Photo Plans Gallery Weekend After Terrorist Attacks Led to Fair’s Early Close

After closing early in the wake of the terrorist attacks that hit Paris on November 13, Paris Photo will be launching a gallery weekend in the city this Saturday and Sunday, in part to allow visitors to see some of the art that would have continued to be on view at the fair.

In part organized by galleries Les Filles du Calvaire and Françoise Paviot, the weekend will involve fifty-five Parisian and international galleries. For the event, “artworks will be displayed as they had been imagined for Paris Photo 2015,” according to the fair’s spokespeople, who add that they intend for the weekend to give viewing opportunities to the “collectors and photography aficionados who did not have the opportunity to visit the fair at the Grand Palais.”
