Each year, a jury of professionals consisting of a curator or art centre director, an artist and a member of 40mcube selects four visual artists who have graduated for at least two years, and gives them the means to focus entirely on their artistic practice for a period of seven months. They develop and deepen their research work, produce works, build up their professional networks and acquire good practices (administrative, legal, social, etc.).
Within this programme, artists are offered individual support, a studio, funding and privileged meetings with contemporary art professionals working in France and abroad.
The jury also selects two curators each year for a one-month prospection trip in Brittany. They meet with artists and professionals living in the region and write two texts on the work of the artists in the programme.
With the collaboration of the art centres La Criée (Rennes) and Passerelle (Brest), the Frac Brittany, the Archives de la critique d\'art (Rennes), Documents d\'artistes Bretagne and a.c.b. - art contemporain en Bretagne, GENERATOR brings together and makes available to artists and curators the professional, critical and technical skills gathered in Brittany, a dynamic territory with numerous contemporary art structures dedicated to exhibitions, collections, research and publishing.
Artists : 7 months (october-april)
Curators: 1 month (march)
Call for application published between January and March each year.
