New Horizons
Cutting edge materials

19.06.23

On Monday, June 19th, as part of OPEN Buenos Aires II Edition, we offered a professional workshop led by David Arteagoitia (Director of the Open Portfolio FIG Bilbao, artist, and PhD in Printmaking). Organized in collaboration with CCEBA—Centro Cultural de España en Buenos Aires, this event was free for all its participants: art professionals, printmaking artists, and those creators interested in exploring new forms of expression in contemporary printmaking.

With the attendance of a large and specialized audience, in “New Horizons” we immersed ourselves in the exciting world of plastic materials and bi-component resins as constructive elements in contemporary printmaking. These modern materials allow us to expand boundaries and develop artistic concepts in printmaking while connecting us with contemporary artistic expressions.

Throughout the workshop, we explored various techniques of artistic printmaking involving the use of plastic materials and bi-component resins. We learned how to use them as matrices to create unique prints and experimented with different methods of application and manipulation. Additionally, we analyzed how these materials and techniques can influence the concepts and messages conveyed through print works. We explored the possibilities of expanded drifts that emerge when combining these materials with other contemporary artistic expressions, such as digital art, street art, or kinetic art.

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.
