Cycles @ Bs As
By the Law of Periodical Repetition, everything which has happened once must happen again and again and again-and not capriciously, but at regular periods, and each thing in its own period, not another’s, and each obeying its own law…the same Nature which delights in periodical repetition in the skies is the Nature which orders the affairs of the earth. Let us not underrate the value of that hint.
For the first ’aceNITE of the year, named Memory, an International Project developed during 2014 with the participation of 25 artists from Argentina, Australia, Canada, Spain, USA and New Zealand, called Cycles, was exhibited.
Cycles was an initiative through which we were able to make spaces available for work in print media to be created, as well as spaces for the interaction among artists from different nationalities. Each of the participants created a print inspired in the idea of [cycles] from their own multiple perspectives, alluding to the idea of movement, rotation, beginning and end, of mythical return of what was and ended, what opens and closed or what is repeated indefinitely leading to multiple visual interpretations.
After this project, 28 portfolios had been made, were 25 of them were donated to the artists, and the rest, were donated to two public collections at Frogman´s Print Workshop in the USA and the Talleres Nacionales de Gráfica in Mexico, as well one portfolio is part of the Fundación ´ace Art Archives.

ABOUT THE CYCLES PROJECT
[CYCLES] was an initiative through which we searched to open spaces for the creation of work, the interaction of artists of all nationalities with Argentine ones, new opportunities for exhibition and dissemination of works as well as discussion and ideas exchange with renowned international artists and art writers.
Art in Print edits a journal called New Editions. The 2015 edition includes around 50 printmaking projects that were selected and analyzed by more than a dozen authors. It also includes reviews of contemporary printmaking exhibitions and the selection for the Prix de Print Award.
In presents a wide variety of artworks which include established as well as emerging artists; objects produced in well known printmaking centres but also the ones produced through more artesanal methods.
The scope has been expanded in order to offer a complete view of contemporary art landscape and each selection is considered as an independent art piece.
