It is in a spirit at the same time radical, striking, transcultural and efferverscent that the School Gallery/ Olivier Castaing is defending since more than 10 years experienced and young artists coming from everywhere. The commmited stance of Olivier Castaing offers a different approach of artworks. After a visit at the Gallery, Olivier invites collectors and visitors in a building from the XVIIth century, former Horse-drawn carriage’s hotel for Lyon’s post… an historical place for a full immersion in a living reserve… an installation fully-fledged. Within his « lair » as he named it often, we discover the multiplicity of what he likes, his particular interest for photography and production of his fetish artist.
After 6 years past in a private home in a court yard of the Marais, the gallery set up in the Haut Marais and flood a new space of 240 m2 nearby la Gaité Lyrique, on the corner between Saint-Martin and Notre Dame de Nazareth streets. The School Gallery opens its 10th annual programming in a huger space with 50 m of cymas and appropriated volumes for the installations. This gallery wants to be a place of discoveries and promotions for Contemporary Art under any medium, from video installation to sculpture, painting, drawing, photography, design and architectural creations.
