#7: Cohabiting Borders
Fellowships for artists living in Argentina
A boundary is more like a membrane than a wall. (Dwight Conquergood)
Proyecto´ace, with the support of the Metropolitan Fund for Culture, Arts and Science (Ministry of Culture of the City of Buenos Aires), opens the call to award 20 full scholarships to participate in the online program for creation Together Apart— 7th edition: COHABITING BORDERS. Of the 20 scholarships available, 10 will be awarded to artists, curators, researchers and creators who legally reside in the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires and another 10 to those who legally reside in Argentine federal territory outside the City of Buenos Aires. The Together Apart— #7: COHABITING BORDERS program accepts and encourages the participation of artists of any medium, language, age, nationality and career level.
Together Apart functions as a remote haven for artistic practices, an online program that is part residency, part seminar, part workshop, and part collaborative project. During the development of the program, participants will work on the production of work exercises, there will be talks by guest artists, technical toolboxes and work reviews by the ´ace team in conjunction with the rest of the colleagues and cohort partners. At the end of the meetings, participants will have produced a new body of work all under the same theme, so that everyone can explore a common idea but each in their own personal way. In order to give visibility in the local and international circuit to the work of the participants, ́ace will create on its website an individual profile for each of them under the ARTISTS section and a page of the cohort in the ACTIVITIES section. In addition, the fellowship holders will participate in the online inauguration of the exhibition of the works made during the program, which will be open to the public and guests. For this, a page of the results obtained will be created within the Proyecto´ace website within the EXHIBITIONS section.

#7: COHABITING BORDERS: CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK
“A border does not work without a structure that is in contact with those areas that intends to isolate. That is why, more than as a clear division, we are interested in approaching the border as that area where what is sought to isolate affects each other, and where that limit seems to function as a composting atmosphere (with its decompositions and maturations), generating new ecologies of knowledge.
From Together Apart—#7: COHABITING BORDERS, we propose to function as a border to inhabit, as a place of transits and permeable encounters for different practices and disciplines. It is a program that encourages exploration and collaboration not only between the arts, but also between arts and sciences, technologies and social practices. Some questions we will ask ourselves are: What border processes are relevant to our practices? What resonances do we find between the dissemination of concepts such as fluid, permeable, stained, trans–? How to make space to accommodate both the increasingly pressing need to think beyond binarisms, collaborative and transdisciplinary artistic practices?”
