Together Apart

Frontier
Artists in dialogue

“Threshold, boundaries, and neat divisions are essential to every symbolic structure, but it is precisely where boundaries break down, where they blur and leak, are violated or crossed, that pollution enters the cultural picture.” Siri Hutsvedt, 2012

“Together Apart” is a new international program that proposes a collaborative work and research format. Initially conceived in times of pandemic as a refuge for artistic practices, the program seeks to rethink residences in times of closed borders and restricted physical contact, supporting the international artistic and cultural community through the promotion of collective research and experimentation projects between and among trans-disciplinary.


Twenty two professional artists  are participating of this cohort, connecting from United States (including Hawaii), Canada, UK, Spain, Austria, Italia and Switzerland, whose expertise embrace a wide range of artistic practices and disciplines: fine arts (including drawing, printmaking, painting and sculpture); textile art, urban and regional planning, graphic design; illustration and performance as well as feminist and social activism. Traveling, diaspora and cultural cross-pollination are common grounds in many of your bios. The cohort will be creating new artwork while exploring references, concepts and ideas with our own expertise and using materials-tools that may be available in each one places. This cohort will produce new work while exploring references, concepts and ideas through each participant own experience while using materials-tools that may be available in each place. We will focus on how we perceive and respond to the main theme, FRONTIER through three axes: frontiers inside and outside of Geopolitics, Body and Art as triggers for reflections on art, nature, environment, society and politics. In Frontier the process and the mutual nurturing are more important that the final piece.


This program has already been completed, with a great success, by 46 artists from around the world. During August-September 2020 we developed SHELTER, its first edition in English, with a group of participants from Argentina, Australia, Canada, Colombia, Croatia, the United States, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Jordan, Norway and the Netherlands. During October-November 2020, NEST was a second edition in Spanish, which hosted artists from Argentina, Germany, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, the United States, Mexico and Venezuela. Many of them have continued working in collaboratively projects after the end of the program while all have expanded their networks of contacts, leaving us very stimulating testimonies to continue with this activity.

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.
