Neverland Netherlands # 2 - the B93 Studio

AREHolland is an international artist residency with two guest studios for visual artists wihle providing  living and working accommodation for a period of three months. The residency is held in the B93 gallery with ten other Dutch and German artists. The studios are located outside of the city center, surrounded by greenery, farmland, bicycle and hiking trails. At the end of the residency the artists are offered an exhibition in the city centre or a suitable other location. I get a personalized information artist biography here: www.areholland.com/jovannatosello.html
The B93 studio was founded in 1993 and is located on the same street as the Polaroid factory. The area  is being developed into a culture, sports and education center. They have monthly exhibitions under their Carte Blanche gallery space. The studio rents six studios to ten visual artists and two guest studios. Regular guest artists come to Enschede for the United States and participants in the European Pepiniere.
