The deadline for receipt of projects is closed. We are doing the pre-selection


In order to support emerging creation, MISCELANEA opens the Call for 2020 Exhibition program.

  • Through this call 70% of the programming of the gallery will be selected.
  • This open call is aimed to visual artists which work is mainly in two dimensions due to the characteristics of the space and using languages as illustration, painting, design and graphic arts, in small and medium format. All 3-dimensional disciplines or with a different character from that mentioned above will be taken into consideration depending on the subject and the layout of the project in the exhibition hall.
  • We look for projects intended to be shown in MISCELANEA, taking into account the characteristics of the exhibition space and not previously presented in Barcelona.
  • All projects that experiment with new formats and languages and trying to offer an innovative proposal will be positively valued, as well as follow-up activities to the exhibition project (talks, screenings, workshops, publications, etc.).
  • The selected projects will be exhibited at MISCELANEA during 2020 and will be supported by MISCELANEA for the assembly and promotion of the exhibition which will run for 4 weeks.

Here you will find all the information and details on how to present your project:


Projects will be shortlisted in a three-step process:

  1. Pre-selection
    All entries will be reviewed by the MISCELANEA team and a selection committee formed by cultural managers, designers and artists from different disciplines, who will share their knowledge and experience when evaluating projects.
    It will pre-select a maximum of 30 projects and will be posted on our website.
  2. Public selection - 1 project -
    To encourage participation and involvement of the recipients of MISCELANEA while trying to know their interests and tastes, we propose an open vote among all pre-selected projects where the public can give their vote to the project that would like to see exhibited in the gallery.
    The project to get the most votes will be directly selected to be exposed.
    (The votes obtained in other projects will not be relevant for the Final Selection by MISCELANEA).
  3. Final selection - 6 projects -
    Of all the pre-selected projects MISCELANEA team will select up to 6 projects that will be part of the MISCELANEA's Exhibition programming of 2020.
