The exhibition Hairstory/Herstory  included Jill AnnieMargaret’s work developed in different instances: Shed, an installation produced years ago in USA that was mounted in a different way at the Dialogue Space and the artist book from the project Hairstory-Herstory, made from the work in collaboration with women groups from Idaho, USA and Buenos Aires, Argentina during her residency in the ‘acePIRAR Program.

This project gave the opportunity to ‘ace to exchange its artistic activity with a new community and space and at the same time to enrich from the participation from the Oral Narration group, Centre Arminda Aberastury that belongs to the Women Secretary at the Buenos Aires Government.

During the July 30th ‘aceNITE, we had the very special visit from the group of women participants from the Oral Narration Workshop developed in the Arminda Aberastury Centre, from its coordinators Patricia Rendón, Silvia Cukierblat and its director Cristina Vasino. Also Daniela Reich, director from the Women Direction of the City of Buenos Aires.

ABOUT Hairstory – Herstory

This project addresses the basic human rights of women and girls with regard to freedom from sexual assault and battery. Establishing partnerships with the Women’s and Children’s Alliance, Boise, Idaho, USA and the Centre Arminda Aberastury, Buenos Aires, Argentina, the artist led a series of workshops, which gathered writing, audio recordings and hair to create the exhibition. The project gives voice to a community of women whose common shared experiences often leave them silent and isolated.

The project was hosted under the auspices of Subgerencia Operativa Asuntos Culturales (Cultural Affairs Council) of Buenos Aires, Ministerio de Cultura (Ministry of Culture) and Gobierno de la Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires (Autonomous City of Buenos Aires Government). It is supported by the Arts and Humanities Institute, Division of Research and Economic Development, The College of Arts and Sciences, The Art Department and International Learning Opportunities of Boise State University.

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.
