The Open Studio Madrid initiative aims to boost and promote Spanish contemporary art at international level, as well as to foster and strengthen the network between our own artists and foreign professionals and to promote the visibility of our creators beyond our borders.


Previous editions have included visits from directors of museums and centres including the Orange County Museum of Art in Los Angeles, Le Plateau (Le Frac Île-de-France) in Paris, the Kunsthalle Fridericianum museum in Kassel, the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Newcastle, the Château des Adhemar in Montélimar, Gasworks in London, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, Centro de Desarrollo de las Artes Visuales in Cuba, and MAMM in Medellín (Colombia), as well as visits from curators from Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Germany, Morocco and France and international gallery owners. This fulfils one of the organisation’s main goals: to ensure that artists gain visibility among professionals both inside and outside our borders.


With the support of the state agency Acción Cultural Española (AC/E) and thanks to the Program for the Internationalization of Spanish Culture (PICE) (visitors category), a specific program for invited  professionals has been created , coordinated by Plataforma FELIPAMANUELA and directed by comissioner Andrea Pacheco.

Programa Invitados consists in inviting a group of professionals to visit artists’ studios, art centres, residencies, and such for four days. It includes relocations during tours, coordination, accompanying, meals, and acts and invitations to other Open Studio Madrid events.


National commissioners are also invited to take part in some of the joint visits. With this, networks are created between national and international cultural agents.

Thanks to this internationalization program, artists taking part in previous editions of Open Studio Madrid have received proposals to take part in group or individual exhibitions in national and international galleries and art centres, as well as offers for residencies, and have also made new contacts, which is always useful to promote their work.
