Through its activities, Galerie Galerie wishes to support artists in digital and Web art, to promote the production, dissemination and democratization of digital and Web art in all its forms, demystify the Web as a collective and creative space accessible to all, the creators, as well as the public, promote access to online art by providing a moving platform that is open to all, encourage the presence of marginalized communities as creative agents on the Web, and break down stereotypes toward digital and Web artistic practices by taking a stand on the artistic and monetary value attributed to them.
Born from the need to create an alternative art space, Galerie Galerie is a non-profit organization devoted to the production, dissemination, and democratization of digital and Web art in a context adapted to it, but also in the continuity of it. Since 2016, Galerie Galerie is always adapting to the current creation issues in order to offer an all Web production and dissemination environment to emerging and professional artists, namely via an online platform and different digital communication tools. Each year, the organization presents a series of online exhibitions, gives digital and Web creation workshops to a variety of public, gets involved in the organisation of mediation events called “IRL” (“In Real Life”), including a digital art auction, and participates in various special projects in collaboration with multiple partners.
Galerie Galerie is motivated by feminist and queer values and promotes artistic work from all horizons, as well as dissident critical views.
- Highlight online art ;
- Support and legitimize “non-institutional” or heretical practices and thoughts ;
- Break down stereotypes toward immateriality and the sub-categorization of digital and Web artistic practices ;
- Provide a reflection platform where collaborators from all horizons can discuss and reflect upon the digital and Web condition of culture in today’s society ;
- Promote and take part in the transposition and outgrowth of traditional media toward a Web environment.
In a cooperative spirit, we are always looking for ideas and collaborations that fulfill our mandate (articles, curatorial ideas, events, related reflections, etc.). Feel free to send us your projects !
