Around 100 leading figures in the French art scene have published an open letter calling on the culture minister Roselyne Bachelot to lift Covid-19 restrictions on the country’s galleries and museums, allowing them to reopen “as widely and as soon as possible”. The Change.org petition, launched by the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, has garnered more than 2,000 signatures in two days.

Signatories include Emma Lavigne, the president of the Palais de Tokyo; Maja Hoffmann, the founder of the Luma Foundation; Quentin Bajac, the director of the Jeu de Paume; Nicolas Bourriaud, managing director of Montpellier Contemporain; Chiara Parisi, director of the Centre Pompidou Metz; Bice Curiger, director of the Fondation Vincent Van Gogh Arles and Jean-François Chougnet, president of the Mucem in Marseille.
