On Wednesday June 29th we were visited by Professor Ruben García with his students from the Municipal Institute of Photographic Art and Audiovisual Techniques from Avellaneda.

ABOUT THE OPEN STUDIO

Avellaneda is the head of the party namesake city located in the Province of Buenos Aires. Separated from the capital only by the Riachuelo, this district is part of greater Buenos Aires. Its municipality, through the Secretary of Culture held 7 institutes dedicated to the arts. The Municipal Institute of Photographic Art and Audiovisual Techniques is one of them.

Professor Ruben García in charge of photography courses, contacted us and arranged a visit with his students interested in the exhibitions that opened at ´ace on June 22 and especially by the “Pinhole” one and “Nothing dies, everything transforms”.

Students received a guided visit through the facilities, a talk with the director Alicia Candiani who emphasized the “cross pollination” between disciplines and made focus on the curatorial project of “dialogue” between the work of the English artist Jackie MacRae and the Argentine and Peruvian artists who were selected in “Pinhole” Open Call. They also received a brief demo of photolithography processes and other practices related with photography and print media by our Masterprint Jr. Valeria Zamparolo.

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.
