Self-Portraits 10th

16.10.2019 to 15.11.2019



On October 16, the International Self-Portraits Project was inaugurated in the Proyecto´ace's Políglota Room, with the presence of Joseph Scheer, co-director of the Institute of Electronic Arts (IEA) at Alfred University and Aodi Liang, Associate Researcher at the same university. Both of them traveled to Buenos Aires to carry out different activities, which included giving a conference within the framework of the Master's of Electronic Arts at UNTREF (Scheer) and an artistic residence at Proyecto´ace (Liang).

The "Self-Portraits" Project is a collection of international artworks developed under the direction of Argentine artist Alicia Candiani whose original idea was to bring together artists from diverse cultures to visually explore the theoretically complex issues of 'self-representation’ as a means of identity.  After the launch date in 2006, Alicia has been invited by nine art institutions from Argentina,  Mallorca y Cuenca in Spain, Brazil, Canada, Sweden as well as Kansas City, Montclair and Anchorage, Alaska in the United States to execute the project.

In 2018, during her stay at the Expanded Media Division of Alfred University in New York, USA, Alicia developed the theme of self-representation during a semester with her students of the Artists' Multiples course. Teachers from the division participated in the project together with them, in addition to Joseph Scheer and Andrew Deutsch as guest artists.
