Le Cube – independent art room is a space of exhibition, residence and research that is centered on contemporary artistic practices. Its approach revolves around projects that raise social, cultural and political questionings and supports proposals that review History and narratives.
In this dynamic, Le Cube designs and develops a vast program of exhibitions that link artistic issues to other dimensions of research, in order to carry out a constantly evolving reflection on our environment. Meant as a space for analysis and experimentation, Le Cube adopts and supports an approach that allows the artists and audiences to express their reflections and views.
In an effort to promote younger generations, Le Cube – independent art room has established residency programs, such as, the new generation and the summer’s lab, which nurtures emerging artists in the conception, production, and exhibition of their artistic work. Also, with the program curators zone program, Le Cube – independent art room invites independent curators to construct new narratives, re-examine and rethink exhibition and diffusion systems. In order to collectively build on the subjects covered by the exhibitions, Le Cube organizes meetings, conferences and special evenings (talk, video night, listening session) that create new spaces for critical interaction and invent new modalities of collaborative action.
In order to reach out to different audiences in many geographic areas, Le Cube has also conceived the program hors les murs that enables the dissemination of the projects it sets up and produces.
In addition, Le Cube – independent art room follows several emerging Moroccan artists over the longer term, by offering them administrative support (advice in making artistic files, respond to calls for applications, text design, and networking), reflexive support (provision of theoretical tools provision, meeting with cultural operators and academics), and technical support (production of works, assessment of needs, follow-up with suppliers).
Le Cube also ensures to grant female artists a particular position in its program in order to counterbalance their unequal presence in the artistic field.
All the activities of Le Cube give shape to a rich transversality which, by making the disciplines porous, makes it possible to explore new territories and creates an interdisciplinary platform of dialogue and meeting for audiences and professionals of all fields.
Le Cube – independent art room is composed of an exhibition, projection, conference, workshop and performance space, a library and a freely accessible archive, as a well as a residence for research and production.
Since its founding in 2005 by Elisabeth Piskernik, Le Cube – independent art room has organized more than 120 exhibitions, just as much events and residencies in the field of contemporary art and has collaborated with more than 240 national and international artists and cultural operators.
