Visit for everyone
Reflection on the mediation of contemporary art for all audiences is at the centre of La Galerie’s activities. Working from the exhibitions and artistic programme, the Visitors Service develops dedicated tools and approaches to raise awareness. Everyone has the opportunity to see the creation of today and take part in its ecosystem, while always respecting cultural rights.
Using interactive teaching methods, La Galerie develops activities for children, teenagers and adults (alone or in groups), giving everyone the chance to become familiar with the creative process of artists and experience artworks in a more significant way.
La Galerie’s exhibition spaces are accessible to people with reduced mobility.
A mediator greets each visitor, and they are happy to accompany them during their visit. Exhibition booklet (bilingual French/English) is also available.
Events are presented in parallel with every exhibition: conferences, meetings, and practical and digital workshops).
Children are given a newspaper created especially for them, to work on with family, mediators or at home. Designed by the mediator in collaboration with the graphic designers from Atelier Pierre Pierre, this illustrated newspaper offers children a fun approach to the exhibitions. And they can make it their own, even transforming it into a poster to hang up at home.
As part of the project by the Île-de-France Region, La Galerie offers a free publication to all the holders of a Navigo pass (on presentation of proof).
