The Residency

Nectar is a non-profit cultural organization located in the midst of nature in the off-the-grid 16th-century farmhouse, surrounded by endless forest inside Les Guilleries Natural Park, about 1h and 30min drive north from Barcelona.

In its Artist Residency Program, Nectar will work in collaboration with àngels barcelona gallery and On Mediation_Platform on Curatorship and Research, an initiative of the Research Group Art Globalization Interculturality (AGI) from the University of Barcelona.
The culmination of the residency will be an exhibition at espai2 from àngels barcelona gallery, one of the most well-known Contemporary Art Galleries in Barcelona, where the artists will present their works within the frame of Art Nou Festival. The opening will be on September 5th 2019.

The artists will have the chance to present their work in an Open Studio event and gather along with guests and cultural agents from the local art scene, enabling a space of conversation and feed-back. A one-day visit to exhibitions, art spaces, artist’s studios or other events in Barcelona will be organized by Nectar’s team. During their residency, the artists will have access to Nectar’s administrative and human support and to its network with local artistic and cultural community.

From an open call addressed to young curators who have attended one of the 6 editions of On Mediation (2013-2019), a curator will be chosen to curate the exhibition in espai2. The young curator will work from the proposals of the four resident artists, taking charge of the curatorship and the exhibition's communication and activation.
