Galleria Continua / Le Moulin, Group Exhibition

Since it was founded in 1990 in San Gimignano, in the heart of Tuscany (Italy), the Galleria Continua has supported artists who dialogue and exchange between unusual, rural, industrial, local and global geographies, the art of the recent past and that of today. The Galleria Continua has now embarked upon a new adventure, establishing near Paris a new space dedicated to contemporary art. Every season, in the former paper mill of the rural village of Boissy-le-Châtel, over 2 hectares of land on the banks of the Morin river, Galleria Continua / Le Moulin will play host to exceptional international-level artistic gatherings, providing a showcase for ambitious works by artists from five continents. For the inaugural exhibition the artists work on exhibition and special commissions are: Ai Weiwei, Daniel Buren, Loris Cecchini, Chen Zhen, Berlinde De Bruyckere, Carlos Garaicoa, Kendell Geers, Subodh Gupta, Mona Hatoum, Ilya Kabakov, Anish Kapoor, Jorge Macchi, Sabrina Mezzaqui, Hans Op de Beeck, Lucy + Jorge Orta, Luca Pancrazzi, Bruno Peinado, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Serse, Nedko Solakov, Pascale Marthine Tayou, Yan Lei, Zheng Guogu and Zhuang Hui.
