EvelynRodriguezis creating Residency and Contemporary Exhibition
The ProjectFor the last 5 years I've dreamed about opening a residency/exhibition space in Puglia. I finally found the right space. With the help of your generous donations, the project can be fully realized.
The project will host several artists, curators and writers at a time. The space will have an advisory committee and lend itself to contemporary practices, research, publications and exhibitions. The villa is very close to the sea, farms, hilltop towns, the city of Lecce and more. The funds would help me purchase the building and land, that includes 2 acres of olive trees and a building to house artists and exhibitions.
PurposeThere is a need for more contemporary art spaces in rural Southern Italy, not only to research contemporary practices, but also to rediscover/discover the history surrounding the space.
What Is NeededI've been working really hard to get this project up and running, and I am seeking support at this initial stage. There are designs to extend the building, and the villa needs an updated bathroom and kitchen. With your generous donations, I can guarantee the purchase of the property and the success of the project.
A publication is in the works, as well as plans for the first exhibition in mid-2019 with a visiting curator and a group of international artists. The project is forming a group of institutional advisors and the support of a strong community.
