´aceNITE, Exhibitions


18.07.12 01.08.12

During the month of July, ‘ace will be hosting the exhibition Exercises, which includes 11 artists-students from the Smoje workshop. This exhibition will also provide the experience of putting together a collaboration between the Smoje´s workshop and the ´ace Foundation. Oscar (“Bear”) Smoje (picture) is a well known Argentine artist; being  drawing, painting and small piece sculpture the means that he uses the most. The artist has also a lot of experience when it comes to cultural management, and he is currently the director of the National Exhibition Hall (former Palais de Glace).

Exercises (by Oscar Smoje) 

“Every image includes a drawing. Even the act of imagining involves us to outline, contour, color, shade. As we learn to talk, draw, is in some sense, an act necessary and important, through which we learn to become independent and individualized by writing our name while interpreting ideas, signs and symbols. Drawing exercises are nothing more nor less than the ebb and flow of ideas, trial and error of our conformation as interpreters of a reality that we practice every day. This is the challenge that we propose in the workshop: testing the forms to shape an own world, intending learn to speak a language”. Oscar Smoje

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.
