VOLTAIRE, A NEW CREATION AND EXHIBITION SPACE
In the wake of its action aiming to offer artists creation and distribution spaces in sites before their rehabilitation, Emerige created Voltaire, thereby transforming an old and small industrial factory into a temporary space of artistic production and exhibition.
Along with artists in residencies who have access to studios, Voltaire will host the collective exhibition of the 6th edition of the Emerige Revelations Grant, from the 9t h of October to the 17th of November 2019.

Chosen by a professional judging panel, the laureate will be announced on the 7th of October 2019. They will enjoy the support of gb agency, the use of a studio for a year, and a €15,000 grant to create their personal exhibition at the gallery in 2020.
