The Gibraltar Cultural Services have announced that Alan Perez has been selected to represent Gibraltar at the Berlin artist residency. The Berlin art residence exchange programme is a cultural development initiative organised by GCS on behalf of the Ministry of Culture, together with Lichtenberg Studios.
Alan Perez will be required to travel to Berlin, Germany in July for a four week period and develop his work and ideas in urban public spaces.
GCS also confirm that as part of the exchange, Berlin based artist Max Sudhues will be travelling to Gibraltar in the autumn as part of the residency. The work by Max Sudhues promises exciting and innovative site-specific works employing light and shadows that will hopefully delight and inspire older, as well as the younger generation of artists and arts going public of Gibraltar.
A publication and an exhibition in Gibraltar will follow.
