Printing Days

12.09.16 23.12.16

From October to December 2016, we made our workshop available to the local community of engraving and expanded graphics. The proposal was to carry out printing sessions for those artists who need a professionally equipped workshop to print their work and who can work independently, offering our facilities, materials and common tools in an engraving workshop, in addition to interacting with the artists in residency and the generation of new networks of contacts.

Our engraving workshop is a spacious and quiet space with natural light and ventilation that comes from large window doors and two ceiling lights. The place has WI-FI, mechanical ventilation, air conditioning and heating. Here you can do all the traditional intaglio, monotype and relief techniques as well as photolithography and lithography without water, photopolymer and aquatint on silk, in addition to artist’s books.

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.
