I've only explored Paris galleries a few times, so I'm sure there's a lot missing from this list. That being said if you're visiting Paris and want to see some art (outside of the incredible museums) these galleries are a solid group.
List of Paris Galleries
If you're in Paris and want to explore my list - check out my google map here.
The following list is laid out by neighborhood since that's how I usually plan my gallery visits. As always, some of these may not be exactly in the neighborhood listed, but they should be at least close. Paris is divided into 20 Arrondissements, and most of the galleries are in the 4th arrondissement in an area called Le Marais.
Perrotin has two Paris locations - 60 rue de Turenne, and 76 rue de Turenne. 76 rue de Turenne is definitely the more regal of the two, but they're right around the corner from one another, so visiting both shouldn't be too challenging.
Perrotin 1 Address: 60 Rue de Turenne, 75003 Paris, France
Perrotin's 60 rue de Turenne location is the more modern of the two, with two gallery spaces on the ground floor and lower level.
Perrotin 2 Address: 76 rue de Turenne, Paris, 75003, France
The most famous and beautiful of probably all Perrotin's locations, you can't miss it thanks to its grand staircases.
Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac
Address: 7 rue Debelleyme, Paris, 75003, France
Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac's location is extremely modern, with galleries spanning three floors, the room below on the ground floor being the largest of them all.
Address: 108 Rue Vieille du Temple, Paris, 75003, France
While David Zwirner's Paris location has only one main room, it's spacious and filled with natural light.
Address: 8 Rue Saint-Claude, Paris, 75003, France
Address: 64 Rue de Turenne, 75003 Paris, France
Above is what you should expect when visiting most galleries in Paris. There's usually a large wooden door with a sign out front, just walk on through. I know it feels a little strange at first but it's not trespassing and is completely normal.
Once you're in the courtyard start looking for the gallery entrance. Sometimes there will be a few galleries tucked away in these charming spaces.
Frank Elbaz Gallery
Address: 66 Rue de Turenne, 75003 Paris, France
On the way in to Almine Rech, don't miss Frank Elbaz Gallery. It's a little hard to spot, so keep your eyes peeled.
Address: 79 Rue du Temple, 75003 Paris, France
Galerie Nathalie Obadia
Address: 3 Rue du Cloître Saint-Merri, 75004 Paris, France
Address: 4 Passage Sainte Avoye, entrée par le 8, rue Rambuteau, 75003 Paris, France
Galerie Max Hetzler
Address: 57 Rue du Temple, 75004 Paris, France
Galerie Max Hetzler's Paris location is teeny tiny, but they put on good quality shows, so it's worth a look.
After visiting the galleries in Le Marais I'd recommend popping into Chez Janou for dinner.
Galerie Balice Hertling
Address: 239 Rue Saint-Martin, 75003 Paris, France
Address: 6 Rue Jacques Callot, 75006 Paris, France
Address: 6 Rue Louis Armand 92600 Asnières-Sur-Seine France
Address: 4 Rue de Ponthieu, 75008 Paris, France
The interesting thing about Gagosian is that he keeps his gallery brand/aesthetic consistent across all of his locations. So it doesn't matter if you're in London, New York, Paris or LA you're going to get a super modern box.
Galerie Lelong & Co.
Address: 13 rue de Téhéran, Paris, 75008
Address: 1 Rue Fromentin, 75009 Paris, France
Galerie Balice Hertling
Address: 47 Bis Rue Ramponeau, 75020 Paris, France
