About - © Galerie des Galeries

The timeless, vibrant spaces of the Galeries Lafayette stores are a remarkable mix of different periods and styles. For more than a hundred years they have evolved and adapted to changing trends and lifestyles, at the same time forging close links with the creative artists of their time.

The group has made access to creation one of the founding values of its identity, acting as a mediator between artists and the wider public and in keeping with those principles that shaped its beginnings: a unique encounter between creativity and commercial activity for everyone.

The new digital platform,, highlights this hundred-year-old, wide-ranging commitment by providing a showcase, for the first time, for all the artistic and cultural activities that take place in Galeries Lafayette stores. Up until recently, the site had been restricted to exhibitions held in our cultural space, the Galeries des Galeries, but now it has been extended to invited artists, carte blanche invitations and artworks commissioned from anywhere within the Galeries Lafayette group, and, in addition, to cultural institutions and events that we support.

Over the years, Galeries Lafayette has upheld its founding commitment to make beautiful things affordable. Today, the group continues to do this while paying closer and closer attention to mutual exchange and sharing. The thinking behind the new website,, was grounded in this spirit. All the works and activities presented are based on values of accessibility, participation and innovation, in line with the current dynamics of the store, which are to create places of aspiration, exchange and encounter in order to offer visitors a truly unique and inspiring experience.
