ESPRONCEDA – Institute of Art & Culture was founded in 2013 in Barcelona and is an innovative platform for the contemporary arts, education and cultural diffusion. The project is powered by LemonGrass Communications.
Its mission is to provide a multidisciplinary environment and a platform for creation which promotes international dialogue between artists, curators, critics, gallery owners, collectors, cultural institutions and lovers of art & culture. We also want to share with all innovators and people who believe in the importance of synergies of technology, future & art. Therefore we believe in the philosophy of the STARTS program, which tries to connect innovation at the core of Science, Technology, and ARTS. Check out www.Starts.eu.
The ESPRONCEDA programme provides production residencies for national/international artists & curators and curates a cumulative exhibition of their work in Barcelona at the end of each residency.
Espronceda encourages international artists, both established and emerging, to develop their own work and creativity, and to spread their inspiration beyond their physical stay in space.
The Institute promotes educational and cultural programs and diffusions by presenting exhibitions and concepts by renowned artist as well as by exploring curatorial concepts and by organizing a variety of concerts, workshops, roundtables and hosting meetings for art professionals. ESRPONCEDA also wants to be a catalyst for empowering out-of-the-box thinking, enhance creativity & innovation which are relevant in other sectors of human life, not only art.
ESPRONCEDA believes in international cooperation and has established agreements with internationally renowned organisations like APT (Artists Pension Trust), RUFA – Rome fine arts University, the Royal College of Arts London, the prestigious Arte Laguna prize from Venice, and many more to allow for the development of a global exchange of ideas, and for creators to contribute to a greater tolerance and understanding of world cultures. Also, Espronceda was a member of European network of culture and training of Brussels (ENCATC).
We are open to enter into all kind of cooperations, feel free to get in touch with us.

with no rival.”
