-------------

CROSSOVER[KC-BsAs] is the 4th edition of an international project started by the Mexican artist Miguel Rivera, Chair of the Printmaking Department at Kansas City Art Institute (KCAI) located in the city of Kansas City in the United States . Crossover has been designed as a collaborative project between artists questioning the established norms of the original production and authorship of artistic work ,leading to the collaborative work between artists from around the world.One’s work, property and egos became irrelevant, as artists have to trust each other allowing themselves and their counterparts to place their hand-marks, images and matrixes on one’s previous works. Each piece made in this series is unique, these works are not editions, as individual pieces are worked on and circulated among its participants. All artists aimed to evolve in their own practice by finding common points of view and theoretical discourse.

CROSSOVER in Buenos Aires is focused on visual and conceptual re-semantization 15 woodcut plates carved by digital techniques by artist Miguel Rivera  at KCAI workshops in the U.S. and then moved to Fundación'ace for this purpose. Under the direction of Alicia Candiani (´ace founder and director) and Adriana Moracci ( ´ace masterprinter and workshop manager)  participants will use different techniques to create new works that will be able to print in multiple, drawing, painting, mending, add collage and transform them into three-dimensional objects just to name a few possibilities. The resulting works will be exhibited in Buenos Aires and in the United States.
