The Basque Centre-Museum of Contemporary Art, Artium, and the Tabakalera International Centre for Contemporary Culture have created the Institute of Artistic Practices -Jardun Artistikoentzako Institutua (JAI), in basque-, a study programme designed for artists that will open next summer. Artistic practice will be at the core of the programme, which will promote research, production, perception, and critical work.  

The Institute will open its doors in June and, for three months, it will work as a summer school and a space for carrying out artistic exchanges and experiences. Training will take place at the Tabakalera Creators' Space between 1 June and 30 August and, additionally, during the month of September, there will be a public event at Artium, in which the work processes and/or projects participating in this study programme will be presented.

The call (see here terms and conditions) is aimed at sector artists and agents interested in delving deeper into art methodologies. The registration period will be open from today, 21 February, until 31 March 2020 at 11:59 p.m. [UTC+1]. In order to participate, candidates must register via a form that can be found on the Tabakalera website, attaching their curriculum vitae as well as a personal biography, cover letter, and a digital dossier with images of their prior work.

Ibon Aranberri (Artist), Asier Mendizabal (Artist and Professor at KKH, Royal Institute of Art of Stockholm), and Itziar Okariz (Artist) will work as tutors for this new Institute. Participation as teachers will be undertaken by Katinka Bock, June Crespo, Moyra Davey, Jon Mikel Euba, Kobe Matthys-Agency, Lily Reynaud Dewar, Camila Sposati, and Zbynëk Balandran. Additionally, the Institute will have a Study Committee made up of Beatriz Herráez (Director at Artium), Oier Etxeberria (Person in Charge of Contemporary Art at the Tabakalera International Centre for Contemporary Culture, San Sebastián), and the three aforementioned tutors. The Committee members will select the 16 participants that will be part of the Artists' school.
