Galerie Huit Arles is situated in a late 17th century mansion, in the historical town centre of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Arles, France.
Founded by author, curator and heritage conservationist Julia de Bierre in 2007, the gallery hosts exhibitions, artists, and guests from around the world.
Photographs, paintings, sculptures and "objets de désir" are displayed in the unusual salon settings of this atmospheric exhibition and residential space. As well as a regular exhibition programme, and distinguished private views, the gallery hosts residencies and workshops for artists and writers.
Guest rooms or self-contained apartments are also available for rental in the mansion.
