La Chambre blanche is an artist-run centre dedicated to experimentation in and the dessemination of visual art, more specifically installation and in situ practices. Four years after it was founded in 1978, the centre created its own artist in residence program which, as of 1997, became the cornerstone of its activities. The residency program invites artists to question the very nature of artistic work from its inception to its reception. la chambre blanche is particularly interested in works using time as medium. During their residencies artists are encouraged to create a unique, ephemeral work within the context of an in vivo laboratory. Residencies at la chambre blanche last six weeks. In the beginning the gallery is exclusively the artist’s ‘’studio’’. The presentation aspect comes into play later when the doors are opened to visitors in order to allow them to interact with the artist at work. Proposals that emphasize experimentation and exploration are thus of particular interest. The collective’s interest in critical reflection has given rise to significant publications connected to certain events. In addition, each year, Le Bulletin provides an overview of the annual programming with an important focus on critical essays. Finally, two other services deserve to be mentioned. The documentation centre gives public access to an important number of documents on installation, in situ practices, and artists’ residencies. Since 2000, the Web production laboratory invites the artistic community to rethink the idea of in situ within the context of cyberspace. With its production residency program. the Web Lab incites artists to conceive virtual space as a novel space with which to engage.
