Joya: AiR 2017 /Â January-March
Joya: arte + ecologÃaâ€™s Artist in Residence program has hosted over 500 international artists since it opened in 2009. Joya: AiR provides a creative environment free from distraction in one of Spainâ€™s most beautiful and remote regions. Joya: AiR is an interdisciplinary residency at Los GÃ¡zquez, five old restored farmhouses, now an ecologically minded â€˜off-gridâ€™ location in the heart of the Parque Natural Sierra MarÃa-Los VÃ©lez, in the sun-filled region of AndalucÃa, Spain.
Selected artists are given studio space and are encouraged to expand into the surrounding environment of over 20 hectares of land.
For the first quarter of 2017 we seek dedicated contemporary artists looking for a distinct change of pace, and a platform to create work away from the pressures of everyday life. We encourage both emerging and established artists to apply; our selections are based upon the integrity of work presented. The deadline for AiR applications is Friday, December 9thÂ for residencies in the period January-March 2017.
