Larisa Zmud
Guest Curator

17.01.22 29.01.22

No one better to join our #COHABITING BORDERS project, the 7th edition of the Together Apart program, than Larisa Zmud, a feminist artivist who defines herself as a curator “in the broad sense of the practice, as a creator-with-others of flexible, incomplete, mutant knowledge”. Larisa is part of the selection jury as a guest curator to select the 20 artists from Argentina (or foreigners residing legally in Argentina) who will receive our creation grants with the support of the Metropolitan Fund for the Arts of the City of Buenos Aires.

Within her practice, Larisa directed the SlyZmud gallery from 2011 to 2018, between 2016-2018 she was the secretary of MERIDIANO, Argentinean Chamber of Contemporary Art Galleries. In 2018 she founded Sin Destino Aparente, groups for reading texts and critical thinking with a gender perspective.

Since December 2020, she has been part of the National Directorate of Cultural Policies for Equality of the Ministry of Women, Gender and Diversities of the Argentinean Nation. Zmud is part of the artistic and feminist collective Belleza y Felicidad Fiorito, where she teaches cooking classes and coordinates the Comedor Gourmet, a space in which she works on the idea of access to pleasure, contrary to the popular saying “when there is hunger there is no stale bread”.

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.
