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.
