Campos de Gutiérrez

Description 

Campos de Gutiérrez is an international residency program for contemporary artists, designers, curators, and art historians housed in a 19th century coffee plantation in the foothills of Medellin, Colombia. Campos emerged from the desire to promote historical preservation, while being unafraid to repurpose historical structures for the present. It seeks to foster cross-cultural interactions both within its diverse groups of participants, and between those participants and the existing cultural communities of Medellin. Campos de Gutiérrez is constantly accepting applications. All proposals will be taken into consideration but only about eight will be selected each session. Applicants must take the following information into account

Outcome 

One curated group exhibition at the end of each session including physical space, graphic design, printed invitations, press release, and curatorial text.
The option of giving a talk at an established institution every three-month session including graphic design and press release.
