Launched in 1999 by the City of Noisy-le-Sec, La Galerie has been rated centre for contemporary art of national interest. The structure is backed by the Île-de-France Region Cultural Affairs Office (DRAC) — French Ministry of Culture, the Seine-Saint-Denis Department and the Île-de-France Region.

The La Galerie programme reflects the diversity of today’s art in terms of a range of aesthetic and social issues, via the work of emergent or established artists with local, national or international reputations. The programme revolves around two main themes: first of all genius loci, the spirit of place defined by the centre’s distinctive architectural, social and historical associations; and secondly, the word galerie (“gallery”), with its different meanings and implications.
