Sporobole is a contemporary art center that uses an experience-based approach to present the results of artistic explorations. Through this approach it has created a unique reception context for diverse audiences, including artists and researchers working in related fields. The center also endeavors to provide new ways of reading the projects that are presented there, by encouraging multifaceted analytical methods and openness to the free discussion of ideas. It thus sees itself as a place where new forms of knowledge are created. By means of this presentation context, Sporobole reaffirms the role of artists and their work in our social ecology. Committed to representing work in every artistic discipline and created by both emerging and mid-career artists, Sporobole is a full member of the Regroupement des centres d’artistes autogeres du Quebec (RCA AQ).
