Gallery/Dealer Details - Cortex Athletico
Cortex Athletico is a contemporary art gallery based in Bordeaux.
The specific tool which has been developed since 2003 allows us to accompany an increasing number of projects through a system of residencies, production, project spaces, and specially conceived curated projects, using all possible means which enable an artistic proposal to be effectively realized.
The gallery structure as a tool serving Â«initiativeÂ» and the space as an Â«experimental playgroundÂ», allow us to develop projects which often appear somewhere else. Starting with the idea that we should not be contained by our walls, our location, our calendar, and to protect a certain dynamic, we regularly deploy artistic propositions to foreign cities in the form of short exhibitions in partnership (or not) with other structures.
In October 2008, we moved into a new space of a 1000 m2 opposite the MusĂ©ee dâ€™Art Contemporain (CAPC). Within this new space, we are currently widening our field of activity to more complex and ambitious projects including 12 exhibitions
a year and about 20 events in collaboration with other artistic structures and festivals.
Since 2009, we welcome a curated video program by China Girl, selecting international artists, both young and historical.
