Working sessions/Platform launching at Le Centquatre.
Online space dedicated to independent exhibition spaces that have been involved in a movement of experimentation with art-dedicated spaces since the late 1960s.
Networking Artist-run spaces spaces
The main challenge of structuring the Artist-run spaces network is to intensify the dynamism of exchanges between collectives while enhancing the uniqueness of each initiative. Each structure bears the seeds of the response that artists are developing to the artistic context, policy and economic renewal of the cultural sector over the past thirty years. Initiated by Glassbox – beyond an identity question and the issues related to contemporary creation – the team hopes to underline that the question of Artist-run spaces is above all a social phenomenon constructed by its own actors.
The challenges of structuring a network
The networking of Artist-run spaces does not propose to ‘label’ the structures that can respond to what an Artist-run spaces is, but rather to bring a new visibility to this original and alternative form of production and dissemination of contemporary art. Nor is it a question of standardizing the practices and issues specific to each Project Area, but rather of highlighting its influence and the different forms of organization.
