Casa de Velázquez is an exceptional place where artists from different geographic and cultural backgrounds can develop their creative talents, ponder on their craft and their aesthetic inclinations and share their experiences. Its Artistic Section is a centre that encourages experimentation, welcomes the most diverse individual expressions without prejudice and helps to promote the works of its members.

There is a Director of Artistic Studies to supervise the members and implement the artistic policy laid down by the Director of Casa de Velázquez. The Director is responsible for programming: various activities are organised in the course of the year—concerts, exhibitions, film shows, participation in international contemporary art fairs, visits to workshops and publication of catalogues—to promote the members’ work, in Paris, Madrid and various other Spanish and French cities.
