InCUBATE is a research institute and residency program dedicated to challenging current infrastructures, specifically how they affect artistic production. As art historians and arts administrators, our goal is to explore the possibility of developing financial models that could be relevant to contemporary art institutions, as well as collective or individual artist projects working outside an institution. Particularly, we are exploring financial models which are less constrained by external controls and market concerns and which are more effective, more realistic, and more relevant to both art and the everyday. Our goal is to continue to conceptualize new possible situations, document these innovations, and make this information available to everyone.
In this vimeo channel we will be documenting our ongoing projects as well as conducting informal discussions with artists, curators, organizers, and collectives. These videos are part of a public archive as a way of providing a visual space for ongoing discussions and building networks between different artistic and social practices.
