Quel avenir pour le marché de l’art en France ?
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?

Romain Chenais (born in 1985, Paris). After studying at the Institut d’Etudes Politiques in Paris and the Royal College of Arts in London, he created in 2011, with Jason Hwang, the Shanaynay exhibition space in Paris, which aims to present a young international scene that is not very visible in France and to question the structures of the exhibition. In 2013, he opened the High Art gallery with Jason Hwang and Philippe Joppin. In 2019, High Art opens its second space in Arles.
