Just Residence 2017 Avilés
with Carlos Garaicoa
JustMAD is gearing up to launch 2017’s iteration next February. Soon we shall be announcing our curatorial team as well as new sections. In the meantime, everyone in the team wishes to extend an invitation to all aficionados and Contemporary Art lovers to attend this phenomenal encounter with the Emerging Art. Please mark your calendars and join us from 21-26 February at COAM’s headquarters in Madrid’s city center.
Solo Project Section
This is JustMAD’s eighth edition and its goal is to stay strong in supporting emerging art galleries, alternative spaces in Spain and abroad. Seeking to fulfil this motto, we have picked up the solo-project section under the name of Curated Venture.
To curate this very important part of the fair, we are delighted to announce the collaboration of magnificent curator Tim Goossens.
Art Residency Program
For the fourth consecutive time and thanks to the support of the town of Avilés and Fundación Banco de Santander, JustMAD celebrates a new edition of JustRESIDENCE. This is a 4-week art residency program that offers residents the opportunity to enjoy a creative experience in companionship with other international artists. Curatorial discourse defined for 2017’s edition is the transformation and reclaim of the industrial landscape through art.
The destination was chosen to host JustRESIDENCE 2017 is the town of Avilés in the north of Spain, and we are delighted to announce Carlos Garaicoa as JustRESIDENCE 2017 resident’s mentor.

Emerging Art Fair Madrid
We shall be back very soon with the series of exhibitions. This initiative has already served to give visibility to the work of Jorge Pérez, with the show “The Other Side”, as well as Ryan Turley‘s with the exhibition titled “Changing Roles”.
We’ll keep everyone posted about the three new shows we are lining up for the fall.
Jorge Peréz “The other Side” Series
All participant artists have no commercial representation in Spain, and they either were residents at the art residency JustRESIDENCE Málaga 2016, or were exhibited at Complutense University of Madrid’s MFA program booth at JustMAD7. They all shared the same professional profile in the art market, and it is in the acceptance of this reality where the curatorial discourse emerges. The latter questions the mechanisms of creation of value with humor.
