Épatez La Galerie !

Exhibition of outdoor projects and workshops

13 Apr. — 30 Apr. 2022

  • Opening:13 Apr. 2022

Each year La Galerie, centre d’art contemporain de Noisy-le-Sec presents “Épatez La Galerie !”, an exhibition showcasing its approach to education and the partnerships developed throughout the season. Professionally produced, it exhibits and reactivates the work of staff artists Céline Drouin Laroche and Anna Ternon, created during the workshops held in conjunction with exhibitions from September. These workshops are the heart of the art centre’s educational programme and let young people from Noisy-le-Sec discover the artworks, the work and the thinking of contemporary artists through discussion and practice.


“Épatez La Galerie !” also highlights the range of projects developed beyond La Galerie’s walls. Conceived and led by artists, they offer sensory experiences that promote exchange and joint creation. Extending over long periods, with inhabitants, people who frequent Noisy-le-Sec and associations, these cultural action projects create strong links and encourage dialogue between the art centre, artists, the public and local stakeholders.

This year, for the first time, the inhabitants of Noisy-le-Sec will present a performance at La Galerie, a pre-opening for the exhibition. La Galerie is also organising a panel discussion to discuss co-creation between artists and inhabitants, open to contemporary art professionals, associations and anyone interested in these subjects.
