URBAN INTERVENTION RESIDENCIES
A PLATFORM FOR DIALOGUE
Because we believe that culture is a basic necessity and that it development contributes to the society transformation processes, we support projects seeking for a creative dialogue with the community and the city in which we are located.
In this way, the Urban Intervention Residencies act as a platform for processes, exchanges and activities that seek to connect civil society with the artist-in-residence work, stimulating projects that allow the incorporation of new social voices through dialogue and collaborative work.
International and national established artists in all disciplines of visual arts and performers who present projects relating their artistic practices with the urban community of Buenos Aires city.
Proposals in which the artist looks forward to influence the urban-social structure of the city and work in collaboration with other artists, schools, institutions, special communities, etc. Projects are usually 4 weeks.
Registration is free. We have four open calls per year. Deadlines on January 30 th, April 30th, July 31th and October 31th.
´ace is an independent non-profit organization. Currently, it does not have financial resources to sponsor the residencies. The residency has a fee that should be paid by the artist or sponsors in their countries of origin.
Prior to the arrival of the resident, ´ace will do the pre-production, looking for institutional sponsors as well as indentifying interventions places or strategic partners (schools, coops, civic groups, etc) for the proposed projects.
The artist resides in Aloj´ace, uses our workshop or related workshops, and receives professional assistance, materials and mobility for the production of the proposal and / or support to perform work outside the facilities of ´ace.
According with the project, a video that register the interventions or actions may be produced. Upon completion, the work is introduced to a wider audience in a public presentation in ´ace.
