Critical Mass
Group Exhibition

30.11.13 24.01.14

Since November 30, 2013, the Critical Mass exhibition was on display for 2 months in ´ace Foundation for Contemporary Art’s Sala Políglota, an International Exchange of portfolios organized by Nathaniel Stern (Professor of Art and Design at the School of the Arts at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, and Research Associate at the University of Johannesburg College of Art, Design and Architecture Research Center) and Rhianna Andrews from the University of Milwaukee in the United States.

The portfolio includes forty artists, all published in Richard Noyce’s books Printmaking at the Edge (2006 | 2008) and Critical Mass: Printmaking Beyond the Edge (2010). The portfolio “explores the evolutionary techniques and approaches, strategies and materials that are used in and with contemporary forms of printing. It is a project of artists – explorers who put hands to work: with ink, metal and stone, with politics and pop culture and characters, and in the bits, bytes and code of new technologies. Artists cross borders with new ways of thinking, doing and collaborating. “

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
