Vilaseco from the hamlet

Vilaseco from the hamlet comes up after years of work, experimentation and reflection about art and contemporary artistic production. Its birth is the result of thinking about what, when and how can the relation between current art and society be improved, getting closer to all the realities that exist in Galicia.

One of the main goals of Vilaseco from the Hamlet is to untie contemporary art from its urban exclusivity through a number of activities and proposals that position the rural as a promoter agent. Based on the experience of Vilaseco Creative Lab, this new proposal seeks to establish a place open to contemporary art, where art continues to be promoted, incorporating new formats through reflection, debate and coexistence with the rural environment.

Vilaseco from the hamlet seeks to create a net of shared resources between all the spheres. The urban world needs from the rural as much as the rural world needs from the urban, and that wants to be a first step in the path of defining the future of our communities.

Throughout 2023, a programme of activities including, among others, different workshops, talks on astronomy and art, a curator’s meeting and an international art residence will be developed from this place.
