KONSTellation, a contemporary art trail

The contemporary art galleries of the Marais are joining the Institut Suédois to celebrate its 50th anniversary and its year-long programme devoted to friendship. From 29 June to 4 July 2021, they will be highlighting their own friendship with Swedish art by exhibiting work by the Swedish artists they represent.
The participating galleries' adresses in shape of a star constellation

For one week, a constellation of eight galleries in the Marais will be presenting ‘their’ Swedish artists. The event presents a variety of forms, experiences and generations and an eclectic panorama of artistic practices embodying a dynamic Swedish art scene that is increasingly making its presence felt in Paris. The Institut Suédois, which initiated the project, will be the starting point (or end point) of the ‘art trail’, and will be presenting a group exhibition of artworks by each featured artist.
