The Lab Program is a partner project with Pandeo-DF, an independent cultural center in Mexico City. Through this collaboration we offer a creative laboratory to receive any kind of researchers interested in questioning their production process, and willing to expand their questions using intersectional production and curatorial strategies.
The Lab Program invites candidates to take creative risks by re-negotiating genuine curiosity as a main gear for critical thinking.
Participants are guided to develop their ideas and outcomes in relation to the cultural, affective and urban experiences of living in Mexico City.
Our residents get the chance to share their work in public events such as talks, exhibitions, workshops, open studio sessions or any other format that may fit the nature of their projects. While, through Pandeo, The Lab Program has a gallery space, we try to challenge the most common formats of exhibition that are usually engaged in contemporary art contexts.
Additionally some independent art spaces are open to collaborate with our residents. Engagement with the local community is highly encouraged.
