Founded in 1996 in a former industrial workshop in the Marais district, Galerie Les filles du calvaire showcases and fosters contemporary creation. The gallery is a showroom as well as a place to share ideas. With an inaugural season dedicated to photography, its programme has been quickly widened to the dialogue between different fields of contemporary art: painting, sculpture, video, installation and also photography. From the start, the gallery takes pride in featuring the work of established international artists simultaneously supporting young creators and both political questioning. The gallery contributes to international art scene frequently taking part in art fairs and salons in France and abroad, and collaborating with numerous institutions worldwide. By itself or in co-edition, the gallery also produces a great number of publications to promote the work of its artists.
