A home for art
Chiquita Room is a contemporary art center that works simultaneously as a gallery, a residence for artists and an artist book publisher. We are dedicated to accompany artists along their projects, reflecting relevant issues to society through a critical, innovative and collective approach, while exploring the poetics of artistic expression from the interaction between art and other disciplines. Our aim is to make people aware of art as a way to live a better life, as a source of knowledge and beauty, in order to expand their points of view and interpretations of reality. All this is possible thanks to a team of good people, wo work committed, skilled and passionately taking great care of the processes and details.
Chiquita Room is the heir to the artist’s book publishing project Chiquita Ediciones, which opened in 2018 as a commitment from its director, Laura González Palacios.
Chiquita Room exhibits artists and curates projects that want to reflect relevant issues for contemporary society with a critical and innovative approach, while exploring the poetics of artistic expression through the interaction between art and other disciplines. The public that visits Chiquita Room is invited to reflect, analyze or discuss the proposed topics, expanding them with personal points of view and interpretations. Each artistic project on display is expanded with an edited book.
Chiquita Ediciones was born in 2013 as an independent micro-publisher specialized in artist’s books, from unfinished publications, Chiquita Ediciones invited artists to participate in them in order to generate a dialogue and interaction. All exhibitions held at the art center have an associated publication.
Chiquita Room is a home for international artists, it offers a space for accommodation, artistic production and exhibition. Through its own residency program, it invites artists to live in Barcelona, integrate and be inspired by the city and carry out the entire creative process.
