La Station offers an experimental platform within which up-and-coming artists can find conditions conducive to initiating projects and participating in the development, promotion and dissemination of their activities. This enabling initiative started in Nice in 1996 allows the emergence of research in real and professional exhibition or production conditions. La Station was originally housed within the walls of a former service station located at 26 boulevard Gambetta in Nice from which it took its name, then moved on according to the realities of the places that sheltered it.
The relevance of La Station lies in a desire to offer an extra link connecting artists, institutions, art centers, galleries and the public as closely as possibly, trying to give added value to the existing cultural panorama. In addition to its internal programs, over the years La Station has acquired a national and European audience thanks to exhibitions organized in various cities abroad. On the extramural front La Station constructs its projects from the starting point of the work of the artists that constitute it and their particular artistic practices, put into a new perspective in the context of a collective exhibition, so approaching the whole thing in a unity of place, time and space.
