General information

Brief description of organisation

LPEP is an independent space whose objective is to promote a dialogue between artists from different disciplines and nationalities, as well as between art and society in general, with a specific interest in projects focused on art and politics.
LPEP offers a space for research, production and exhibition of works in the local circuit. We also offer contacts and connections with institutions related to art and culture (galleries, museums, artists, cultural centers and alternative spaces) according to the needs of each resident artist.

Brief description of residency program

La Paternal Espacio Proyecto is a research, production and training laboratory that seeks to build networks between Art and Society. It receives researchers in contemporary art, curators, managers and artists from all disciplines who wish to come to the city to perform some type of study, research or postgraduate. To do this, it proposes a space to live, investigate and experiment in periods ranging from 3 months to 1 year.
Throughout the 10 years of research and action carried out by this house of studies, programs have been developed in the field of Art and Politics (PAPO), Art and Technology (SIRVEVERSE), Art and Environment (LPR), Art, Education and Citizenship (CONJUGAR CIUDAD) in which each resident participates from their artistic experience. That is why in LPEP we put at the service of all its residents a reference of each subject according to the interests that the artist possesses.
