The 15 selected artists to attend this year’s workshop, who come from Spain, Sweden, Germany, Holland, Morocco, Colombia, the United States and Chile will work closely with Cristina Iglesias who proposes the wokshop ‘From one’s internal landscape, the studio, to the external landscape, the streets, nature’ focused on the work process, beginning with a private reflection in the studio and its various manifestations, through to the materialisation of the project made publicly visible.

The selected artists are: Patricia Sandonis Vicente (Valladolid, 1984), Inés García Gómez (Bilbao, 1983), Emanuel Rohss (Sweden, 1985), Paloma Rodera Martínez (Madrid, 1987), Rubén Martin de Luca (Madrid, 1977), Ani Jasmin Schulze (Germany, 1982), Vesta Maria Kroese (Holland, 1979), Diego Diez (Barcelona, 1994), Yassine Chouati (Morocco, 1988), Javier Rodríguez Lozano (Madrid, 1992),  Laura Colmenares Guerra (Colombia, 1978), Grace Lee Lawrence (USA, 1989), Francisco Navarrete Sitja (Chile, 1986), Susan Fedynak (USA, 1986) and Matthew Wilson (USA, 1982).

The workshop, which will be delivered in Spanish and English is a unique opportunity to become acquainted with sculpture in a practical way. The exhibition to be set-up at Centro Botín, CRISTINA IGLESIAS: ENTRƎSPACIOS, will allow them to discover how their installations occupy space by building a place. In addition, architect Maddi Rotaeche will also take part in the workshop, providing her experience and support throughout.
