HOSPITAL DE ARTISTAS

Starting from the metaphor of a hospital, “Hospital de Artistas” (Hospital for Artists) is a lab that seeks to enable artists to stimulate and develop their own personal projects in the field of visual and/or performance arts. It is also intended as a safe space for receiving feedback, exchanging knowledge and comparing and developing their proposals through practice.

Hospital de Artistas is a halfway house between visual and performance arts which seeks to influence artists whose proposals are on the boundaries between the two. Furthermore, it is an open space for any synergies that may arise between participants themselves.

The participating artists will be: Marta Pinilla, Ceci Cameo, Costa Badía, RevSilver, Tito Rubio-Iglesias, Sara Ruiz Ferrer, Andrea Sainz, Alexia Cobo and Los Abajonistas.
