Open Studio Madrid drives and promotes Spanish contemporary art at international level, as well as fostering and strengthening networking between domestic and foreign professional artists and the mobility of our creators beyond our borders.
This goal is achieved through a programme of personal invitations to professionals. We have had visits from directors of centres and museums such as the Los Angeles Orange County Museum of Art, Le Plateau (Le Frac Île-de-France), Kunsthalle Fridericianum in Kassel, the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Chateau des Adhemar, in addition to international gallery directors and independent curators. This fulfils one of the organisation’s main goals: to ensure that artists gain visibility among professionals both inside and outside our borders.
In the 2015 edition, with the collaboration of AC / E through the PICE programme , Institut Français and Nissan, professionals were invited from museums and art centers such as Gasworks London, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York , Development Center Visual Arts of Cuba and curators from Brazil, Chile, Mexico , Germany and France. A specific program is been created for the involved participants including the travel invitations, hotel and studio tours and events from Open Studio for three days.
Thanks to this program, participant artists from previous editions of Open Studio Madrid, have received proposals for exhibitions in art centers, participating in group or solo exhibitions at national and international galleries and have made new contacts.
