Grey Cube Projects (formerly PERMANENTE) is an autonomous space that offers a platform to promote various training alignments, with the participation of international artists. We seek to disseminate artistic practices that we consider are still in the process of germination within the local context; hence encouraging the creation of cross-disciplinary projects and invite creators trained in different areas of knowledge, to enrich our community.
GREY CUBE PROJECTS Residencies are divided into three types:
- Direct Invitation: GCP invites artists, curators, and cultural agents to conduct field research. In exchange the resident performs social activities where he/she presents the results of their investigation in a varied range of formats such as laboratories, workshops or exhibitions. Such actions are directed towards GCP’s community.
