Seasons
Artists in Dialogue

01.12.11

During the month of December, Seasons, an exhibition by former artists-in-residence Sarah Tabbert (Alaska) and Andrew Donohoe (Tasmania, Australia) will be exhibited in the Dialogue Space of the ‘ace house.

The exhibition introduces a collection of works produced during their residencies in the workshops of ‘ace in the year 2010. This works belong ‘ace’s permanent collection and are part of a project that seeks to begin exhibiting this collection.

Both Sarah and Andrew seek their inspiration in the different forms in nature, which results, in the case of the artist originally from Alaska, in abstract and organic compositions constructed through the superposition of woodcut  layers in different colors. Andrew, on the other hand, translates nature through cut lines that act as backgrounds for the flat black figures.

Adriana Moracci designed and mounted this exhibition with the aim to bring together artists who, even living in opposite extremes of the world, join common concerns about nature and also about printmaking techniques. The exhibition can be visited by appointment until the 20th of February.

Sara Tabbert works are part of Ice Series made during her residency at ‘ace, which took place in October-November 2010.

Sara Tabbert studied printmaking at Grinnell College (USA) and received a MA in printmaking at the University of Nebraska (USA). Although her work has different forms, her main interest is to work in woodcut. Ten years ago, she returned to her hometown in Fairbanks, Alaska and built a studio where she currently lives and works. She has recently solo-exhibited her works in Seattle, New Mexico and in the Museum of Anchorage in the USA.

Andrew Donohoe (Tasmania, Australia) presents works made in linoleum which he donated after his residence in ‘ace, where he worked with the waterless photo-lithography technique. He is a self-taught artist who works professionally full time in his career. In 2010 he was awarded the Silk Cut, one of the 3 major awards in Australia for engraving in linocuts.

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.
