June 25

This summer, DARE-DARE invites you to experience a two-part research blitz in public space.

1) Residency period (two days)

At the HALTE (Pavilion of reference and reflection on art in the public space), you will have at your disposal more than 600 publications to browse freely during two days. Your objective will be to extract elements or combinations that are significant, flamboyant, contradictory, intuitive...

2) Exchange context

After a period of reflection and in light of your discoveries and research practice, you will develop/organize a context of exchange based on the reading circle typology. You will be invited to associate culinary and/or performative elements to this activity.

These micro-residencies aim to question and (re)animate our relationship to reading, archives and exchange.

We are therefore looking for profiles capable of creating unique links between our publications, in a spontaneous way that will allow the proposition of unifying experiences questioning these relationships.

DARE-DARE invites people who want to explore and experiment with new research intersections.

The Critical Space committee will pay particular attention to applications that are challenged by the unpredictable nature of a research residency in a documentation center.


Your free-form proposal should address these four points:

  • Explain your artistic and/or research practice
  • Explain your interest in the project
  • Present an example of a research project conducted in the past (finalized or not)
  • Indicate the periods proposed for the residency and the context of the exchange following it, between August 1st and September 30.

►  Only applications sent in digital form will be considered - total file size 15 MB maximum.

Accepted formats: PDF documents, MP3 sound, MP4 video (max. 5 minutes), JPG images (max. 15), Website.

The center offers:

  • Support for the coordination, dissemination and promotion of the project;
  • An $800 fee;
  • Photographic, audio or video documentation.

HALTE - DARE-DARE's Pavilion of reference and reflection on art in the public space

The HALTE offers a meeting space to share its documentary resources and artistic publications with a wider public. It also presents a program of micro-projects revolving around reading, writing, poetry, theorizing, reading, books and the library.

The HALTE wishes to promote accessibility to documentation in order to offer documentary tools specifically related to public art and contextual projects. It covers a selection of publications addressing the themes of art in public space, art and politics, action art, decolonization of the arts, architecture and design, urbanism, citizen and participatory approaches, relations to territories, and more!
