Galleria Continua is thrilled to announce that La Residencia, A Belmond Hotel, nestled in the green folds of Mallorca ́s UNESCO protected Sierra de Tramuntana, will offer a magnificent opportunity for artists from all over the globe.
In collaboration with Galleria Continua, La Residencia launches an open call and invites artists to apply for one of three residency programmes at Deia ́s intimate mountainside enclave, long-associated with artists of all disciplines.
The residency programme ties in with Belmond’s longstanding commitment to the arts, which embraces unique collaborations and initiatives. Last year, Belmond partnered with Galleria Continua for MITICO, a showcase of works by four prominent artists around its Italian properties which embodied values such as acceptance and community, culminating ultimately in a celebration of the art of living. These same philosophies accompany Galleria Continua in all its artistic endeavours and collaborations, permeating through to this artistic residence in Mallorca. This island has long been a source of creativity for artists across disciplines who have been inspired by the island’s dramatic landscape, spanning from mountains to the sea, like painter Joan Miró, its ancient monasteries like composer Frédéric Chopin or its idyllic tranquillity like poet Robert Graves. Belmond and Galleria Continua are excited to embark upon another adventure in art with the new and diverse artists who will apply, aspiring to conduct a fruitful residence that takes the magic and inspiration of this island and transfers it to all those who pass through.
The call for applications begins on February 9th, 2023 and closes on March 9th, 2023.
The three artists in Residencia will be selected by a prestigious committee from the art and hospitality world.
The committee’s results will be released on the 31st of March, 2023.
Artists keen to find out more shall download the press release before sending their application to firstname.lastname@example.org
