Artistas en residencia 2017

The Artists in Residence programme is organised jointly by La Casa Encendida and CA2M with a mandate to support artistic creation and research centred on performative work with the body.

Artists in Residence ties in with the core programming of LCE and CA2M, and for this reason particular emphasis will be given to project that engage best with the two art centres’ main lines of research and experimentation. Artists in Residence also aims at striking up a dialogue between artists and the main agents associated with the art centres and their respective programmes.

The residency has a maximum duration of eight weeks at LCE and CA2M. The times and work spaces will be agreed in accordance with the needs of the individual project and in function of the availability of spaces at the art centres.

The residency comes with a fee of €2000 (taxes included).

The seven (7) shortlisted projects will be made public on 21 December 2016.
