    DAFO is a contemporary art space which particularly appreciates Emergent Art scene, based in the city of Lleida which is optimally situated in a decentralized region. This strategic position allows its influence to reach art circles in Lleida, Barcelona and Madrid as well as the rest of Spain and Europe.

    DAFO is a solid attempt to amalgamate a specific stage for Emergent Art. ***
    A fundamental structure permits it to work with Catalan, Spanish and International artist, at the same time offering the city a program of expositions and significant activities within the current panorama of contemporary art.

    DAFO is set up as an artistic space from which it can develop a network for interchange with similar spaces throughout Europe.

    Declaration of Intent_

    DAFO takes its name from typical company feasibility reports, used to determine the feasibility of a project (SWOT in English). An analogy when used initially provides a certain sense of amusement (It’s difficult to measure the feasibility of a work of art). DAFO set up as an alternative to the circuit of commercial galleries that defines and sustains the art market.

    DAFO is a producer of art projects which has its own space at its disposition, a hybrid space setting itself between a small scale Art centre and a Gallery, its alternative, concentrating on the role of the artist and helping provide exposure of their work first hand.

    DAFO plan a program of temporary exhibitions accompanied by complementary activities and a small editorial line. In this way DAFO adopts an important role in the representation of certain artists, concentrating on providing them with visibility outside the typical presentation context.
