Komunuma means “community” or “commune” in Esperanto, the language of sharing. This is the name adopted by four contemporary art galleries and an artists’ run-space that came to Romainville in the fall of 2019, to which two new galleries have been added in 2020 and 2021, within a former 20th century industrial site. The site – a campus of nearly 11,000 m2 – was rehabilitated by the Fiminco group and restored by the FREAKS architectural firm. On the same site, the Fiminco Foundation hosts an artists’ residence and organizes exhibitions with emerging artists. The Frac Île de France/Les Réserves is about to open its doors as we update this notice.
