BAR project is an independent, mobile and non-profit organization dedicated to promote artistic exchange through local, national and international residencies and collaborations, and by developing a public program issued from curatorial and research projects.
BAR project gets its name from one of the quintessential social gathering places in our culture in order re-contextualize it and be able to work from there. That place is the popular coffee and beer bar, thought as the right scenario in order to conceive our lines of thought.
BAR project develops a residency program in Barcelona that is conceived as a platform for the internationalization of the local context by making connections between artists and other agents of the sector from a critical and independent perspective. By an invitation process BAR welcomes international artists and curators to come to Barcelona during different periods and following different types of residencies.
BAR project is a platform which doesn’t have its own venue. Its residencies are possible thanks to different partners and collaborators, who are able to provide BAR’s residents with an apartment on the Eixample area of Barcelona, workshops, located in the production centre Fabra i Coats, and with material and economic budget. Furthermore, the different art centres within the city – institutional and independent- as well as a variety of agents of the local artistic scene, they all participate in the programs’s activities and visits.
Studios for artists are located in the premises of the art center Fabra i Coats. Contact the organization for more information on the details.
The apartment in the Eixample district has four bedrooms, a living room, a full kitchen and two bathrooms and a balcony. WiFi access and bedding is provided.
