Brief description of organisation

Es un espacio autogestionado dedicado al arte contemporáneo emergente a partir de nuestros programas de producción, formación, investigación y vinculación enfocados a las artes visuales, y multimedia.

Los programas de Producción generan la infraestructura adecuada para que los artistas y diseñadores que inician su ejercicio creativo y discursivo puedan desarrollar un proyecto, alcanzar posicionamiento local e internacional a partir de exposiciones, intervenciones, publicación en medios digitales, reseñas sobre su propia obra, y vinculación con otros artistas e instituciones.
El objetivo principal del programa de "Producción" es fomentar los procesos de experimentación y autocrítica a fin de incidir en consolidación de la identidad estética y discursiva del artista emergente.

El objetivo principal del programa de "Formación" es brindar al residente herramientas concretas, tanto prácticas como teóricas, para abordar sus propios procesos creativos. Buscamos que el residente conozca mediante el contacto directo con artistas locales, como resuelven día a día el ejercicio creativo, como estructuran y desarrollan dicha práctica con el fin de dar salida y concluir un proyecto.

capacidad máxima: 8 artistas simultáneamente
