La Placette

La Placette is a contemporary art space that opened in December 2004. Initially located at the rue des Terreaux, this space is restricted to a shop window where a work by a difference artist is shown every month, responding to the previous one, as to the form or the substance. In 2012, la Placette moved to the rue Pré-du-Marché where it occupies the window of a former Hi-Fi shop. The concept remains identical – a 2 x 3,5-metre shop window that welcomes one artist per month – but the gallery now has a 21 m2 back room to present other works related to the one in the window. La Placette practices affordable prices. Some artists shown in the past: RaphaëleZenger, Delphine Coindet, Denis Savary, Aloïs Godinat, Arthur Fouray, Darren Roshier, Miguel Meneses, Cyril Porchet, Camille Sauthier, Nicolas Lemoigne, Allegory, Jessica Hubert, Nicolas Delaroche, Florian Javet, Anne Rochat, Mike Winter, Charlotte Herzig et Christopher Füllemann, Vincent Kohler.
