LA PATERNAL ESPACIO PROYECTO - LPEP
LPEP focuses on the questions: What role does the artist play in the current local context and global crisis? What constructions, beyond the symbolic, are possible today? To think about how an artist can be an active and conscious part of the society in which he or she participates, looking for channels of dialogue between genuine practice and social context.
LPEP offers a space for the development of the artist based on research, production and exhibition. It develops four programmes: PAPO – Paternal: Art and Politics, LA PATERNAL RECICLA – Arts and Environment, SIRVEVERSE – Arts and Technology and CONJUGAR CIUDAD – Arts and Active Citizenship.
To date, approximately 4,500 people have visited us, including neighbours and speciﬁc audiences. More than 500 artists actively participated, some as programme coordinators and others as exhibitors or residents. For many of them, LPEP has been a space for training and learning about cultural management and the development of work from a territorial perspective, promoting the construction of bridges between contemporary practice and context.
