For the forth consecutive year and thanks to the support of the town of Avilés and Fundación Banco de Santander, JustMAD celebrates a new edition of Just Residence. 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.

An Application process for JustRESIDENCE 2017 was articulated through an open call. The aim is to gather a fine group of artists that represent contemporary international creative panorama. The destination chosen to host Just Residence 2017 is the town of Avilés. Located in the north of Spain, this town offers the perfect framework to activate intersections between contemporary art and the industrial footprint on the cityscape.


The artist Carlos Garaicoa will act as Just Residence 2017 resident’s mentor. With a stellar career and a creative discourse intimately linked to architecture, working with Garaicoa offers a superior opportunity. A jury chaired by himself has selected the following artists to participate in Just Residence Avilés 2017.
