An associative art center and venue for contemporary art
Designed as a place of experimentation, espace 36 deploys its activities through an annual program of four exhibitions, editions and public outreach. An association under the law of 1901, this initiative was launched by a group of citizens. Composed of members mainly from the Audomarois region, but also from the Hauts-de-France region, for a collective project, that of sharing.
Not having the vocation of building collections, l’espace 36 rather provides concrete support for multidisciplinary creation such as photography, painting or even sculpture. Four exhibitions a year are programmed by the director, including a production residency and creation and dissemination projects based on current artistic and local events. Espace 36 multiplies artistic points of view through the diversity of expressions in all their plastic forms (photo, video, drawing, sculpture, painting, installation…). While l’espace 36 asserts its local roots, the association is also part of a dynamic of regional, national and international openness and development. These projects aim for collaboration across borders between artists and structures, while reaching out to audiences in different countries like contemporary African art but revealing local artists.
