Montemero Art Residency

zeren@iksvyart.com

Our programme offers a fully-equipped printmaking studio, and other open spaces that are suitable for a variety of creative practices (from visual to performing arts and anything in between). Being located on a biological reserve near the Tabernas Desert, the location offers a unique perspective that aims to cultivate the personal connection with nature and how it functions, while further expanding the idea of eco-living. With minimal external interference, artists-in-residence have the opportunity to focus on themselves and their work in a way that more densely populated areas are unable to provide. The residency is open to people of all ages and backgrounds, and we welcome all those who are looking for space and time to explore new forms of interdisciplinary and intercultural collaboration.

Although, our long-term objective with this programme is to create an eco-art project, here some of our short-term goals:

  • To create an environment and offer the facilities conducive to creative work, integrated with nature, a place to experience new perspectives and acquire new references.
  • Promoting international collaboration and networking, to bring together people from different fields to share and promote ecological and cultural sustainability.
  • Embrace and emphasize the experimental, the undefined and unexpected states of creativity.
Residency Programme since: 2019
Description of Organisation: Montemero Art Residency is an organization dedicated to sustainable ecology and alternative art production. We believe that the experience of living and creating in a different context has to be facilitated through collaboration and exchange. Thus, we opened our facilities to artists for them to network and collaborate with professionals from other fields.
