Founded in 2001, 40mcube is an exhibition space and office of organization for contemporary art projects based in Rennes. 40mcube’s principal activity is art production, where there exists a close interaction with the artist through all aspects of the process including its feasibility, technique, fabrication, up until the presentation and public mediation.

This process of production, from exhibitions to mediation, is made through a reflection on contemporary art, which is further shown through 40mcube’s published editions. Edited through a collaboration with partners of publishing houses and distributors, these publications are available in bookstores.

40mcube has developed several different sectors that act as a part of the organization: 40mcube — exhibition; 40mcube — publishing; 40mcube AV, which co-produces artists’ videos with the audiovisual sector; 40mcube — public space, which works with artistic projects taking place in a public space, notably the project Chantier public and the New Patrons program created by the Fondation de France.

40mcube occupies an industrial building that includes an exhibition space of 170m², a black room dedicated to a programming of international artists’ films, an office, a studio for artists in residence, which all exists on a plot of 1100m² divided into three sections: a courtyard, a patio, and a garden. Considered a public place, this exterior site will be used to house artistic projects with the same statute as the exhibitions as well as works of a more permanent nature, which will eventually lead to the creation of an urban sculpture park.
