Taller 7 is an independent project that began in 2003 as an initiative of a group of visual artists concerned with the lack of spaces open to the creation, discussion and promotion of artistic practices outside the established institutional circuit. The project has tried to generate new ways of promotion and exchange by implementing alternative platforms that allow new points of contact through self-management and collective work.
Since its start, Taller 7 has been a laboratory for creation and experimentation and an exhibition space that shows the works of people from different contexts hence becoming a place for the discussion of different artistic practices. By articulating the processes of emerging and established artists, the generational gap is confronted and new bonds, which enrich and expand the current reflection on the arts, are created.
Taller 7 has now developed a residency program which offers work and living space for artists and curators. Its aim is to stimulate the production and development of individual or collective projects to be socialized through exhibitions or talks. This initiative has become a flexible platform for the promotion of the visual arts and a bridge between different contexts. It enables the mutual understanding and exchange of experiences among artists and curators with the aim of strengthening reflection, exploration and research.
