The Studio Visits programme has been created to promote and make visible the work of La Escocesa's resident artists and to activate a space for professional exchange based on hospitality and dialogue between artists and curators. As a way of taking advantage of the flows and resources that are constantly moving in the so-called art world, each month we will invite various agents working in the local context or passing through Barcelona.
These visits are also a pretext to talk about working conditions in the art sector and to think about issues related to professionalisation, sustainability and the generation of related networks.
Next visit: May 17, 2022
