TAITA ARTIST RESIDENCY is a self-funded and self-sustained artist residency and gallery located in the city of Málaga. We have been functioning for over three years and, over time, we have attracted solo artists and creatives who were seeking time for focused work, reflection, and engagement with a different environment and culture. As the Founder of Taita Studio and also an artist myself, I decided to maintain Taita as a non-government funded project, foundation, or organisation, in order to allow artists to work at their own pace and without any donation requirements. Taita Studio exists as a little sanctuary for artists to rent and develop their practice while living in a relaxed environment and be inspired by great culture.
The residency programme is associated with the cultural art center and gallery La Casa Amarilla (Instagram: @lca_malaga | Web: www.lcamalaga.com). We provide 72m2 of working space for the artist, attached to an all-inclusive small studio/apartment of 29m2. The resident artist's work-in-progress during the residency will be advertised on both Taita Studio and La Casa Amarilla social media platforms. Additionally, he/she will have the opportunity to exhibit one or two framed works in La Casa Amarilla during the residency with a 35% gallery commission fee.
It is expected of the artist to have a presentation of the residency outcome on the last week of their stay. This can take the form of open studios, solo exhibition, performance, or open discussion. Taita Studio and La Casa Amarilla will assist in the marketing process as well as in hanging and presentation process.
