The Mana BSMT is a collaborative environment that combines artist-driven programming with studios and workspace. It is also home to two residency programs: the Mana Residencies, directed by curators Ysabel Pinyol and Karline Moeller, and the new Mana BSMT Residency.

The Mana BSMT Residency invites artist-curators to assemble a group of artists to work in the open-plan studio space in Mana’s basement. Participants are encouraged to curate their own programming, shaping the collaborative culture of the BSMT. They receive access to shared resources on the Mana campus,
and are introduced to the many artists, gallerists, collectors, and curators who are part of the Mana community.
