Art Residency Program
For the fourth consecutive time and thanks to the support of the town of Avilés and Fundación Banco de Santander, JustMAD celebrates a new edition of JustRESIDENCE. This is a 4-week art residency program that offers residents the opportunity to enjoy a creative experience in companionship with other international artists. Curatorial discourse defined for 2017’s edition is the transformation and reclaim of the industrial landscape through art.
Emerging Art Fair Madrid Curatorial
At JustMAD8 we wish to continue working towards the internationalisation of Spanish emerging Art. In order to do it so, in 2017 Isabela Villanueva will be joining our curatorial team. Venezuelan-born, Isabela is a well-known expert in contemporary Latin-American art and has recently curated the Focus Latin America section at Art Toronto 2016.
The destination was chosen to host JustRESIDENCE 2017 is the town of Avilés in the north of Spain, and we are delighted to announce Carlos Garaicoa as JustRESIDENCE 2017 resident’s mentor.
Solo Project Section
This is JustMAD’s eighth edition and its goal is to stay strong in supporting emerging art galleries, alternative spaces in Spain and abroad. Seeking to fulfil this motto, we have picked up the solo-project section under the name of Curated Venture.
To curate this very important part of the fair, we are delighted to announce the collaboration of magnificent curator Tim Goossens.
Isabela Villanueva will be the technical and artistic advisor to the General Program of the Fair. She will as well be supervising the new galleries that will be participating in this eight edition. Her undeniable knowledge of the current international artistic panorama will endow the proposals that will be on show in February 2017 of an incomparable professional and curatorial support.
