Montemero Art Residency

Montemero Art Residency is an experimental educational programme with a focus on eco-art. Curated by iksvy art and hosted by Finca Montemero on the east coast of Spain, we offer workshops introducing alternative materials and methods to incorporate nature into diverse art practices. Through this and various forms of interconnectivity, we will be creating site-specific eco-art projects.

The programme offers open spaces, interdisciplinary round tables, and workshops. Designed to expand our understanding of nature and recreation, these will also build and improve new/existing skillsets. Accordingly, the residency is open to people of all ages and backgrounds who are looking for time and space to explore new forms of interdisciplinary and intercultural collaboration.
