Initiated by 40mcube and carried out jointly with the European School of Art of Brittany, in partnership with the company Self Signal, GENERATOR is a professional training for young visual artists and a residency for curators.
- For artists: GENERATOR selects four visual artists each year, who have graduated for at least two years, and gives them the means to fully focus on their artistic practice for a period of seven months. They develop and deepen their research work, produce works, build their professional networks and acquire good practices (administrative, legal, social, etc.). GENERATOR offers individualized support, a studio, financing and privileged meetings with contemporary art professionals in France and abroad.
- For curators: GENERATOR selects two to four curators each year for a one-month prospecting trip in Brittany. They meet artists and professionals who live there and write one or two texts on the work of the artists in the program. GENERATOR offers each of them a workspace, funding and privileged meetings with contemporary art professionals in Brittany.
Exhibition, workshops with students, lectures, editing of exhibitions etc.
Each artist will have access to specialised studios including specialist areas such as: resin, metalwork, woodwork, ceramics, printmaking, photography laboratory, video and sound editing.
GENERATOR is based in Rennes, a university town which offers to artists and curators an ideal workplace to develop research.
