SEPTIEME Gallery is a contemporary art gallery whose doors open in October 2019, founded by Julie Banâtre and Léa Perier Loko.
SEPTIEME Gallery presents a cosmopolitan vision of the world through art by questioning belonging and by exploring subtlety in the world and its categories. In this way, the gallery hopes to challenge perceptions and participate in the creation of tomorrow’s world and mentalities, working with commitment to make of its activity a manifesto of the in-between.

Julie Banâtre and Léa Perier Loko founded SEPTIEME Gallery in a spirit of openness to the world based on human engagement and a questioning of origins and their trajectories, after having worked together at L’Agence a Paris for several years.
Julie Banâtre, franco-Guinean, born in New York City, first dedicated herself to social work before integrating the world of Art. Today, fed by her multicultural background, she strives to create connections and to take advantage of the impossibility of a fixed identity. She is also a literary translator for various magazines and editors.
As for Léa Perier Loko, French born in Paris, she realized the importance of going beyond her own origins by moving to Benin to found an Art Center. Since then she has decided to associate anthropological research to her professional career in the Art world, developing her capacity to question her own certitudes and those of her environment. She writes regularly for various catalogues, magazines and exhibits.
