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 (Tacita Dean, Ryan Gander, Alexander Gutke, Daniel Roth, Wilhelm Sasnal, Hans Schabus, Simon Starling, Graham Gussin, Falke Pisano, Jason Dodge, Matti Braun…) together with those of emerging French artists (Dove Allouche, Simon Boudvin, Julien Discrit, Myriam Mechita, Laurent Montaron, Olivier Nottellet, Evariste Richer, Dominique Blais, Hugo Pernet, Etienne Chambaud, Davide Balula, Estefania Penafiel Loaiza, Julie Béna, Rodolphe Delaunay,…).
Day-to-day 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.
A mediation specialist welcomes visitors in the exhibition space. A documentary area has recently been installed in the basement.

She was selected by La Galerie’s board via a call for candidates to achieve her project “Outre mesures et programmes radio (Maps, timelines, radio programmes) » with Tarek Atoui, Cevdet Erek, Mohssin Harraki, Maha Maamoun, Otobong Nkanga, Ossama Mohammed, Hassan Soliman.
