Paris+ par Art Basel announced today first details of its upcoming citywide public program, which will run concurrently to the fair’s second edition. Freely accessible to the public, the program comprises three exhibitions, two monumental outdoor installations, and a series of talks and debates, presented in six iconic locations across the city. They include the Jardin des Tuileries – Domaine national du Louvre, the Chapelle des Petits-Augustins des Beaux-Arts de Paris, and the Place Vendôme – all of which hosted projects in 2022 – as well as three new venues: the Palais d’Iéna, the parvis de l’Institut de France, and the Centre Pompidou, which will welcome the show’s Conversations program. Paris+ par Art Basel will therefore further expand its offering and footprint in the French capital, as well as its collaborations with local cultural institutions and the City of Paris.

Clément Delépine, Director of Paris+ par Art Basel, says: ‘I am delighted that with three new venues, we were able to significantly bolster the public program of Paris+ par Art Basel’s upcoming edition. The fruitful institutional partnerships we put in place and the ambitious proposal resulting from them are defining features of our show in the French capital. With Paris+ par Art Basel’s 2023 public program, Parisians and visitors from out of town will be able to experience thought-provoking art and engaging discourse in the context of historical, if not legendary, locations.’
