Founded in 2010 following the meeting of two art enthusiasts, Mohammed Chaoui El Faiz and Fihr Kettani, La Galerie 38 lends its walls to African or international emerging and established artists, always with the double objective of exploring artistic research and of participating in the positive development of the contemporary and urban scenes.Read More
Since its inception, La Galerie 38 has specialized in African and international contemporary art. She represents more than ten renowned African artists such as Abdoulaye Konaté, Mohamed Hamidi, Barthélémy Toguo or Fathiya Tahiri. Through its numerous personal and collective exhibitions organized each year, the gallery supports and showcases the careers of major contemporary artists.
Always at the forefront, 8 years ago already, La Galerie 38 has decided to also explore urban art. She has thus opened up to the underground world scene, to street-art and to pop-art. Currently, she represents famous artists such as Jef Aerosol, Alec Monopoly, Georges Moquay or Médéric Turay.
Giving pride of place to light and sincere emotion, La Galerie 38 positions itself as a meeting place, a creation and a dissemination space of contemporary and of urban arts for all audiences.
