In early 2012, Corral de Piedra launched a rural artistic residency under the name of El Gallo Rojo. This residence is open to artists of any age, countries and disciplines: theater, dances, artistic performances, visual arts, video, cinema, photography, literature, music, landscaping and other assorted media. The residence is open to 1-3 artists, individually or a group of them, which could last for three days to a whole week, according to what the resident artist wants.
Once the residency ends, the artist may decide if he wants to exhibit his artistic production while he stayed, this to take place at Cura Malal’s La Tranca.
This features a bedroom with 3 beds, a private bathroom, a kitchen, a barbecue stove and a desk, all looking at the land outside. Two bikes are also included, WiFi connection, and a radio/CD player.
