By providing affordable multi- and transdisciplinary spaces for production, “monstration” and exhibitions, MIX'ART Myrys created a place for meetings and exchanges between artists and audiences, and between various visitor groups. Incorporated as an artists’ collective, the association is organized around the principle of self-management. Its funding is based on "free and necessary participation" (both for the public and members), as well as sharing of human, artistic and economic resources and the exchange of knowledge and expertise.
MIX'ART Myrys strives to create a space for cultural democracy between individual and collective existence. Always questioning the space-art-society relationship, the group was recognized by the state in 2001 as belonging to the Nouveaux Territoires de l'Art, which include cultural and societal laboratories for artistic experimentation such as wasteland, intermediate places or factories.
