La Galerie, Contemporary Art Centre, Noisy-le-Sec / Paris
La Galerie is a contemporary art centre founded in 1999 and housed in a nineteenth century villa located in the suburb of Paris offering to a wide audience a program based on the notion of art as a sensory experience and a reflection of our relation to the world.
Four exhibitions a year (two monographic, two thematic) accompanied with reference publications, offer hitherto unseen works by internationally recognized artists together with those of emerging French artists.
Following Hélène Chouteau from 1998 to 2004, Marianne Lanavère was appointed in 2005 as artistic director.
Supporting French artists by producing art works and residencies, La Galerie is identified on the international art scene by hosting foreign curators since 2006 and by publishing a bilingual publication for each show.
In the framework of each exhibition, the team proposes educational and cultural activities, as well as guided documents.
All activities are free. A mediation specialist welcomes visitors in the exhibition space. A documentary area has recently been installed in the basement.
La Galerie is a non-profit institution publicly financed by the City of Noisy-le-Sec, with the support of the Ile-de-France/Ministry of Culture and Communication Regional Cultural Affairs Board, the Seine-Saint-Denis Department and the Ile-de-France region.
