ABOUT 6:40 

Taking inspiration from the method Pecha-Kucha (“Pure Talk” in Japanese, originally created in Tokyo as a meeting place for young designers so they could show their work and make contacts) 6:40 is part of our Portfolio Review program. Its format allows the presentations to remain short and the dynamic of the meeting to remain informal, fun and flexible in addition to providing a space for interaction that encourages creativity and critical analysis of artistic production itself.

6.40 Artist Book to share and publicize the purposes and the work of participating artists by very concise presentations, informal meetings and promoting the dynamic between creative people coming together to share their work, ideas and difficulties, being moderate and receiving a refund by the guest curator.

Each artist will release his artist book through a short presentation in Powerpoint 20 images x 20 seconds exposure each, making a presentation total of 6 ’40” minutes. At the end of all presentations will be an individual and collective curator´s review, as well as a space for reflection for all participants.

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk.
