101 [One Hundred-One]
Artists in dialogue

05.03.08

101 [One Hundred-One] was a very special ´aceNITE that brought together the work of 100 artists from the Americas included in Moving Target Projects + the opening of “Expansion”, the solo exhibition by artist John Hitchcock (USA).

Moving Targets was a Hitchcock’s proposal for an action-intervention on the trains of the city of Buenos Aires. The project reflects on national identities and the crossing of borders, using public transport as a metaphor. It encourages artists to express alternative and transgressive views that react to the obstacles of our societies.  Thus,  50 artists from North America and 50 artists from South America and the Caribbean were invited. They sent works to a ‘ ace digital mailbox. The banners were printed in Buenos Aires. Later, they will used to carry out the performance. The posters were displayed at Ace during the 101 ´aceNITE.

In addition, ´ace made an open call and selected 25 emerging Argentine artists to participate with their images on the banner but also to carry out the action-performance. Among then we invited Federico Signorelli, Iván Vianello and Valeria Zamparolo to work in collaboration with Hitchock in the Expansión , his solo show in the Políglota Room. The installation includes video, drawings interventions on the walls and scren-printing on felts. Federico intervened with his images John’s video, Valeria drew on the window panels “translating” her own images to crosses in the “graphic language” of John and Iván prepared with a small installation in which the objective (Diana / Target) had an important role.

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.
