What a treat to be able to visit a gallery that doesn’t involve queuing for hours or paying to peer in from between the heads (or in my case, elbows) of fellow art-seekers, to piece together the painting less than a metre away from you.
The Galerie Kamel Mennour delivers just that. As one of the many smaller art galleries in the 6th arrondissement, with a rather large reputation, this gallery often acts as a camping ground to renowned artists’ solo exhibitions. The gallery is split across two sites; the first, 47 rue Saint-André des Arts is a hôtel particulier and the leafy courtyard welcomes visitors into the light and airy exhibition space.
A couple of minutes’ walk away at 6 rue du Pont de Lodi is the smaller, second gallery. This gallery is currently host to Lili Reynaud Dewar‘s “Teeth Gums Machines Future Society” . If you happen to be passing through the neighbourhood, be sure to pop in for a futuristic moment of reflection.
