40mcube is a contemporary art centre based in Rennes (France).
“The name 40mcube is linked to the dimensions of their first exhibition space, to an idea of volume of art rather than an area, with reference to the white cube of course, but also to article R421-1 of the French Town Planning Code which stipulates that “under the fourth paragraph of article L421-1 do not fall within the scope of the building permit, statues, monuments or works of art, when they are 12 metres or less above the ground and less than 40 cubic metres in volume.”
As much as 40mcube center for contemporary art aims to be a straightforward tool for artists and curators as much we aimed to make this web site design an obvious transcription of the functions they wanted to have. An Typical exercise to think in the box, or the cube. We opted for a list and a boxing system to have direct access to the core of 40mcube’s activity.
