On Thursday March 25, the French Professional committee of art galleries (CPGA) filed a freedom action with the Council of State under the summary procedure in reaction to the provisions of Decree no 2021-296 of March 19, 2021, so that, on the one hand, art galleries are included among the institutions authorised to welcome the public – in the same way as the voluntary sales companies – and, on the other hand, so that their activity falls within those allowed to welcome the public like bookshops and music shops.
