Open Calls, Together Apart
FRONTIER | Cohort in Spanish
“The limits of my language are the limits of my world”. L. Wittgenstein
“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.
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.
ABOUT FRONTERA, the 3RD EDITION OF TOGETHER APART PROGRAM
This 4-week temporary shelter will accompany the participants in their artistic processes, demolishing real and imagined borders and providing the necessary knowledge to investigate, activate creativity and produce in these unusual circumstances. Artists will be able to work in collaboration with colleagues from different parts of the world. In addition, they will receive feedback and reviews from the directors, guest artists and curators of the program, as well as from the rest of the participants, improving their artistic skills and building personal and professional bonds.
FRONTIER appears here as a concept revisited in its multiple meanings. There are numerous types of borders that delimit infinite types of areas, which can be drawn for diverse reasons. Thus, no border (geopolitical, artistic, personal, physical, social, etc.) can be defined by itself but in relation to both what remains inside as what is left outside.
What we will need

We are a team of artists, cultural managers and educators specialized in production and research of contemporary art. We transition the same questions and difficulties as the artists and curators we support and work with—we understand your needs, and we’re prepared and eager to support and collaborate with you. During the last 15 years we have hosted more than 500 artists in residency and worked with many relevant artistic institutions producing residencies, international exhibitions, urban interventions, educational projects with and for the community, workshops and multiple editions.
