Hello World!
Artists in dialogue

20.05.20

An international project organized by TransCultural exchange organization based in Boston, the USA in which ´ace has been invited to participate.


“The COVID-19 coronavirus seems to have brought a necessary slowdown, if not a downright halt to artistic and cultural gatherings, exchanges and cross-border productions.

Although we believe – and know from experience – that face-to-face interactions are the best way to experience artworks and encourage collaboration, for the moment we recognize that our usual approaches would be inappropriate. Therefore, we are proposing an alternative. Inspired by singers singing from the balconies in Italy, TransCultural Exchange is proposing a virtual, global art project with the aim of continuing to encourage international exchange among artists, showcasing works to new audiences and fostering dialog among peoples of different cultures – without anyone having to leave their homes.

Already, MIT Program Art, Culture and Technology, Harvard University’s Cultural Agents, Theater without Borders, the Goethe-Institut in Boston and India, B’art Contemporary (Kyrgyzstan), pARTage (Mauritius), the Art & Science International Institute in Paris, China Residencies, Switzerland’s artists-in-lab program, among many others have agreed to participate and we have received works from many spots around the world, including Africa, Asia, Europe, and North, Central and South America.

On summer solstice, or June 20th, the longest day of the year (for the North Hemisphere) all the artists’ works and participating venues will be made public on Hello World and remain there for the foreseeable future as a permanent archive.

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.
