Since 2003, the My monkey gallery has been a space for the diffusion, creation and promotion of multidisciplinary work, and has maintained a demanding look at contemporary French and international graphic design. Throughout the year, it offers exhibitions and meetings with artists, and has a sales area for independent editions, a shared work space open to creative people, a photo studio and a printshop (Riso). My monkey also publishes fanzines, catalogs and graphic objects in limited series.
Managed since 2003 by a core of volunteers passionate about art – and graphic arts in particular –, the My Monkey association has a gallery that is now a reference in the landscape of contemporary graphic arts in France.
Privileged islet in a world saturated with images, the gallery space serves as a real observatory and questions the place of graphic design and its current fields of expression, on media as varied as posters, typography, publishing, but also its interactions with other disciplines of contemporary creation such as art, drawing, photography or video.
It invites the public to discover alternative, sensitive, singular or emblematic authors' postures. Whether they are experimental or part of a commissioned work, the proposals of the invited artists have in common that they open wider perspectives to understand our world and the discipline.
By continually seeking to renew its projects and by encouraging permeability between the different art forms of which it proposes a selective vision, My monkey presents itself as a rich and moving, evolving and relevant field of exploration. Its interventions in and ex situ, its regular collaborations with local, national or international actors decompartmentalize at the same time its space, its territory and the approached disciplines.
