Euskara. Kultura. Mundura.
30Apr 202315May 2023Tinos
Basque artist Miriam will participate in an art residency in Tinos, Greece, as part of the Fe26 Residensy project, with support from the Etxepare Basque Institute and Chillida Leku. From 30 April to 14 May, Isasi will join local and international creators.
The objective of the Fe26 program is to enhance the local identity by fostering communication between tradition, technology, design, history, documentation, and other related fields. A crucial aspect of the programme is the relationship between place of origin and regional identity.
This year, the programme will host 15 artists from around the world representing various art forms. The artists will develop innovative projects in the fields of art, design, architecture and literature. Participants will have the opportunity to make contact with artisans as well as the materials and tools they need carry out practical and applied research. By the end of the programme, artists-in-residence will show their work in an exhibition.
