Residency Exchange: La Escocesa / Islington Mill

An artist residency exchange between current and previous studio centres La Escocesa (Barcelona) and Islington Mill (Manchester). Maurice Carlin (IRL) was invited to come and work at La Escocesa for three weeks where he was joined by David Price (UK) and Gary Leddington (UK), two artists based in London and Antwerp. In return, Diego Mallo (ESP) went to work in the large fifth floor space at Islington Mill during this time. The visit to Barcelona by Maurice, David and Gary incorporated a Cháchara event organised by Tamara Kuselman, Ryan Rivadeneyra and Daniel Jacoby and hosted by Homesession, and a Midnight Coffee Preview hosted by Ryan Rivadeneyra. The residency culminated in an open studio exhibition held at La Escocesa. Meanwhile Diego Mallo exhibited the result of his residency at an open studio event organised by Islington Mill.
