En tránsito
Antolí & Noesasí

05.08.14

Fundación ‘ace para el Arte Contemporáneo opens “In transit”, a series of encounters focusing in artistic residencies as a very important stage in contemporary art preparation. Not only of artists but also for curators, managers and other actors.

The first one has been organized together with the Centro Cultural de España in Córdoba in relation to Residencias en Intercambio. We had the participation of curators Paula Lorén (Madrid, Spain), Romina Castiñeira(Córdoba, Argentina) and the selected artists Rosana Antolí (Spain) and Noesasí (Córdoba, Argentina).

ABOUT RESIDENCIES DURING EXCHANGE

Residencias en intercambio is a project that focuses in emergent creators working with contemporary languages, fostering those manifestations which expand the scenery of action beyond the exhibition rooms.

Taking the common aspects in Antoli’s and Noesasí’s work as a starting point, working space limits are challenged. In the one side the predictable exhibition space, which holds and legitimizes the piece and in the other,  the more confusing public space, where the piece loses its protection and “suffers” of severe questioning. Moreover, the urban area is perceived as a highly conditioned context in which advertisements and ornaments search to hide the spots of the past, contributing in the transformation of the people that transits it in a more trivial, futile one.

ABOUT ´acePIRAR

To be an artist-in-residence implies the migration from one’s own creation ambit to find a new inspiring space and in that way moving from (dis)comfort. It means allowing a “crazy” brainstorm within a space of creative freedom, among other artists, curators and people specialized in the area. It is in relation with this idea that we have named our program ‘acePIRAR -Artists-in-Residence International Program – in an attempt to play with the name initials (‘ace because of “hacer” which in Spanish means “doing”) and the program initials with the Argentinian lunfardo “pirar” with its double meaning: to escape/flee/leave from a place and to become a little bit crazy.

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.
