Muralism in the City
PALIMPSEST PROJECT IN THE PUBLIC SPACE
Within the framework of the ´acePIRAR | Artist-in-Residency International Program, Kiik Create (New York-Puerto Rico) and Toia Grehan (Argentina) –artists who had been in residence in previous years– made a 45 meters mural in collaboration with the current artist-in-residence Jenny Roesel Ustick (USA) in the Plaza Gurruchaga of the Villa Crespo neighborhood in Buenos Aires.
This was a project in which the coincidence of wills, desire to work for the community and the talent of the artists resulted in the creation of a work in the public space of the city, which functioned as an extension of the networking produced by residences between the artists and all of them with the community of the City of Buenos Aires.
The mural was possible thanks to the collaboration of Comuna 15 de Buenos Aires, Graffitimundo and Sinteplast.
