Artists-in-Residence is a joint initiative of La Casa Encendida and MACBA (Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona) that supports performative approaches to body-centred creation and research.
It is articulated around the permanent programme of La Casa Encendida and MACBA, so priority will be given to projects that fall within the lines of research and experimentation pursued by both centres. Artists-in-Residence also attempts to establish dialogues between artists and agents associated with both institutions and their programmes.
The residency at the facilities of the two institutions is for a maximum of eight weeks to be carried out between June 2021 and May 2022. Work spaces and hours will be assigned according to each project's requirements and the areas available at the centres.
The six selected projects will be announced on the websites of both institutions, www.lacasaencendida.es and www.macba.cat, on 26 April 2021.
