Artists in dialogue

14.11.19 17.11.19

In its seven years of existence, FIG BILBAO has established itself as a very important platform in Europe, together with Paris and London, for the dissemination, promotion and marketing of the most excellent examples of art on paper and art prints. Exhibitors, museums, art galleries, foundations, cultural institutions and publishers were present at this 8th International Prints and Art on Paper Art Festival in Bilbao, who sustained their international commitment by designating Argentina as a guest country. In 2019 the Festival grew in number of exhibitors, expanded its programming and exhibited more than 400 top-level artists who positioned Bilbao as the a market central point of graphic work throughout Europe.

In the framework of these activities, the organizers made us a generous invitation that included a large exhibition space at no cost, as well as trips and lodging for our delegates together with be featured in the CATALOGUE, in addition to full presence in the  fair activities.

Alicia Candiani was invited to travel as an artist and project director but also to contribute to events related to the fair, among them she joined the FIG Open Portfolio Award Jury (a program aimed at emerging artists),  curated the artists who represent the Fundación´ace in the Cubes of Temptations, participated in the Networking Days and the Encounters Section giving a talk on the international printmaking practices circuits.

For their part, Micaela Muzi, Laurel Ponturo and Juan Reos, the selected artists who traveled from Argentina to install projects in the Cubes of Temptations, delivered demonstrations at central times of the fair with an incredible public attendance. All the activity served to strengthen the international presence of the Fundación´ace, the Proyecto´ace and the artists who work with us.

FIG Bilbao, is a non-profit organization from Bilbao, Spain, which aims to promote and support national and international printmaking and art on paper, generating new collaborations with other countries, as well as initiating dialogue and long-term cooperation.

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.
