Artist in residence program

Artist in residence program

The artist in residence program (AIR) was launched in 2013. Within the framework of the program, Espronceda invites internationally recognized, but also artists with high potential. We offer a creative and cultural experience for stays between 2 and 12 weeks.

The residency culminates in a exhibition/show in which the works created during the program are in the focus. In addition, this show enables the artist to summarize his/her artistic practice in general, activities and experiences gained at Espronceda via a public artist talk. The artists’ exhibition will remain in the space to be visited for at least 2 weeks after the show.

The program includes:

• Private and shared studios/work space

• Final exhibition during the last week of the program with opening reception

• Design support of invitation cards

• Press-release and promotion

• Email invitation to our mailing list

• Pricing advice and sales support

• International visibility

• Support in social media marketing/PR communication

• Use of multimedia work space

• Support in grant applications before and during the stay

• Connect with international network (galleries, collectors, etc.)

• Be member of the Espronceda community and spirit!

Maximum number of residents: 5 at the same time

Partners are welcome for a short period during the residence
