Les Clíniques d'Es Baluard 2015/16

Es Baluard Museu d’Art Modern i Contemporani de Palma launches the second edition of the training programme “Les Clíniques d’Es Baluard”. This is a stable and non-regulated course aimed at artists.

“Les Clíniques d’Es Baluard” started in 2013 taking part 18 artists from different backgrounds and nationalities. It’s aimed at professionals and professionals in progress as well -regardless of age- who find it necessary to take part in a coaching programme.

This eight-month course is the only of its kind organised by a Spanish museum. Its main objective is to promote the professionalization of the artists enabling analysis tools, knowledge, resources and a monitoring of the creative practice.

Two group meetings will open and close the schedule of Les Clíniques. The knowledge exchange between artists and tutors, the joint analysis of projects and the evaluation of creative processes will be developed during these two meetings.

Two sessions, on 17 and 18 September, will open the programme. The participating artists will present then their works. The closing will take place on 8 and 9 April, when the processes carried out since then will be evaluated.

Throughout this eight-month period, the artists will carry out two individualized tutoring with each of the experts. These can be focused as well on the analysis of their project,  the resources to carry them out or the strategies for its circulation within the art system. Individual sessions can be held in the hometown of the coachers or via videoconference.

The programme will be monitored by the course managers, which will oversee its good achievement while following the progress of the participants.
