General information

Brief description of organisation

It’s a new and dynamic platform for contemporary art projects. Situated in an artistic colony called Cuevas del Rodeo on the Costa Blanca in the province of Alicante and in a village called Rojales.

The location of this residence makes it very original and unique, as the accommodation and living space is actually a cave itself!

In this context, these circumstances offer the artist an opportunity to get in touch with nature in a very special way. Far away from big urban conglomerations, it provides the possibility to investigate art projects and interact with the local environment.

artnground is collaborating with culture venues on a national and international basis, for the support of its artist residents.

Brief description of residency program

art N ground is an independent residence integrated in an artistic neighbourhood. Since the beginning of 2016 we offer residence programs for contemporary art investigations.

The location of the residence is quiet singular. The artist will get in touch with the nature by living in a cave house.

We are open for any discipline, all nationalities and any theme.

Our job consists in supporting the artist, releasing articles about his artwork during his stay and to bring him in touch with like-minded persons and contemporary art spaces in Murcia and Alicante.
