Artist residencies

In order to be a museum-laboratory, as well as a place for consideration and art conservation, the MACRO proposes an annual artist residency program.

Designing the new wing of Via Nizza, the architect Odile Decq has created two apartments in the structure, available to the artists annually selected by a committee of experts. During the period of residence, in addition to housing, each artist has a studio of about 120 square meters, transformed into workplace, often open to the public, and into meeting place with curators, critics and workers of field, where it is presented the project realised during the residency program in the museum.

In this way the museum becomes also a center of artistic production, not only for the cultural promotion and diffusion, supporting artists in theory and production, according to their specific needs.

During the period of residence, a series of activities are organized with the residents, in collaboration with the several museums departments and the local and international contemporary culture protagonists: open studios, seminars, workshops, studio visits and tours.
