Young Curators Residency Programme

Since 2020, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo promotes the Young Curators Residency Programme Madrid. The project aims to support emerging curatorial practice while spreading knowledge of the Spanish art scene on an international level. The YCRP Madrid stems from the experience of the Young Curators Residency Programme Torino, that takes place every year in Italy since 2007.
