Founded in March 2018 Galerie Miranda is a photography gallery and bookshop that specialises in works by artists who are established in their own country but who have had little exposure in France and Europe, as well as lesser-known bodies of work by major artists. The bookshop proposes a curated selection of monographies, biographies and critical texts about photography and related arts. Opening on international Women’s Day, the gallery launched with a cycle of exhibitions by leading women artists of whom two are Guggenheim Fellowship winners, one an Andy Warhol Foundation grant winner and the third a major figure of feminist art from the 1970s, thus setting the framework and ambitions for the gallery's future programme.
Galerie Miranda is situated in Paris’ vibrant 10th arrondissement, close to the Place de la République and 100 metres from the former site, on rue Léon Jouhaux, of Louis Daguerre’s Diorama and laboratory, destroyed by fire in 1839. The gallery and bookshop is founded by Miranda Salt, Australian who has lived and worked in the 10th arrondissement since her arrival in France in 1995.
