Open a file and become a depositor to e-artexte

Opening a file

Artist, curator and art critic files We invite artists, curators and researchers to contribute documents and publications about their work and to keep their files updated over time. We encourage you to open a file in order to help disseminate your practice to researchers and to contribute to knowledge production in contemporary art.

These files are an integral part of the permanent collection and are always available to researchers.

Instructions on submitting a file
