La Colonie is a new multi-usage three-storied space in the 1oth arrondissement of Paris close to Gare de Nord and Gare de L’est. The brainchild of Kader Attia and partner Zico Selloum, the one part art space is also a restaurant with a bar and a covered smoking area.
Independently founded the space will be for everyone but with a special effort to be an outlet for creativity and support of minority subjects.
Kader Attia is an artist that has a body of work that focuses on cultural duality and won the Marcel-Duchamp prize for 2016.
I recently went on a Sunday for a projection/conference by Atoubaa on Black Music Video as Cinema.
La Colonie promises to be a place of debate and home for creative pursuits of all forms from the spoken word, to digital to traditional arts.
