Founded by Fabienne Leclerc in 2001, In Situ began in the 13th district of Paris alongside a group of galleries in the rue Louise Weiss. After seven years in the 6th, the gallery moved to the Marais in November 2013 before opening a new space at 14 boulevard de la Chapelle in January 2017. As a founding gallery of the Komunuma project in the Grand Paris suburbs, In Situ – fabienne leclerc joigned colleagues with diverse public and private interests in contemporary art with 500 square meters of newly renovated historic industrial spaces which opened in October 2019.
The ambition of In Situ – fabienne leclerc is to promote young and emerging artists on the French and international art scene, and to support established artists in the long term. In Situ – fabienne leclerc strives to defend the work of its artists in the gallery, in fairs and biennials throughout the world as well as in museums and institutions. The gallery also produces a booklet for each exhibition in the gallery and edits artist catalogues and books.
