31 PROJECT is an entity designed on a flexible model, to react as closely as possible to current events: a vision that is deployed intermittently through a series of exhibitions in the space of the Charles Wesley Hourdé Gallery in Paris and in fairs.

The gallery space at 31 rue de Seine reopens its doors

this Saturday, November 28, 2020 at the usual times.  

We are very happy to see you again!
