The Joal Gallery was established in 2022 in Bastia, Corsica.
It is located in the heart of the city, 33 bis rue César Campinchi.
With a guideline focused on contemporary art and street art, its vocation is to participate in the dynamisation of the cultural sector in Corsica, which is already ambient, by representing Corsican artists, but also those from elsewhere, in order to contribute to the island’s artistic emulation.
It is one of the gallery’s primary missions to support and promote Corsican art and artists. It wants to offer them not only local visibility through exhibitions and events on the island, but also to represent them on the national and international scene by being present at contemporary art fairs.
At its opening, the Joal Gallery has 5 permanent artists and also offers for sale lithographs – serigraphs and prints of big names in street art such as Banksy – Shepard Fairey or Brusk.
The Joal Gallery also offers an artist residency space located at 1, rue impératrice Eugénie.
With the wish to make it a lively place, where artists can meet and exchange their ideas, this creative space also hosts the gallery’s events with the aim of encouraging the emergence of new projects.
