Homesession

General information

Brief description of organisation

Since 2007 Homesession has been a catalyst for creation in the field of visual arts, with its international residency programme and production grants for Spanish artists. In its constant effort to support artists and promote art, Homesession welcomes proposals that utilise diverse media and practices, with a strong focus on interdisciplinary experimentation.

Homesession endeavours to complement the work of the institutions in Barcelona´s art scene: it provides a home for proposals that are daring and innovative in their contents as much as in their format and aesthetics, making room for the unexpected.

Brief description of residency program

Homesession Residency is an artist-in-residence programme for artists and art professionals who want to develop their investigations or projects in Barcelona. In 2012 Homesession Studio opens its doors providing a new space for this programme, consisting of a flat for residents, an exhibition area and shared offices. Homesession Studio offers stays from one week to three months. This gives artists the opportunity to enjoy the interactions that can be generated from a culturally active neighbourhood in the centre of Barcelona. This and the involvement of Homesession in the local art scene makes the stay a key experience in the creative process.
