BASE Documentation and communication of artists graduated from EESAB
BASE is a website published by Documents d'Artistes Bretagne to promote work by recent graduates of the European Higher School of Art of Brittany currently working as visual artists, graphic artists or designers. DD'AB joined forces with the EESAB to create a documentation tool to highlight work by former students from the EESAB's four locations in Brest, Lorient, Quimper, Rennes. On BASE website, the artists can publish a variety of material documenting their works (through photos, videos, texts) and providing an overview of their professional activity : news, work in progress. The website was launched in 2013. After a three year period hosted on the website the portfolios are archived.
The EESAB European Higher School of Art of Brittany, Brest - Lorient - Quimper - Rennes is committed to helping its graduates advance professionally and offering them increased visibility in the national arts scene. The partnership with Documents D'artistes Bretagne was established with this goal in mind.
