Panel ArteBA


On Sunday May 20th, 2012 and as part of the 21st arteBA Contemporary Art Fair in Buenos Aires, Argentina, a panel with free admission will take place at 4:30 pm:


The panel is organized within the schedule of conferences and activities at the auditorium of the fair as part of the Open Forum 2012 program.

residencias_en_red [iberoamérica] will present artist residencies as strategies for production in contemporary Latin American art. This panel has been organized by Alicia Candiani director of ´ace (who will also be the moderator) and Kadija de Paula (residencias_en_red manager). The event will feature the participation of Lorena Cardona (El Levante, Rosario), Julia Tamagnini (Casa13, Cordoba), María José Trucco (Centro Rural de Arte, itinerant project in Argentina) and Aixa Sanchez (Oficina # 1, Caracas, Venezuela).

The proposal for the discussion will focus on the possibilities that the model of the artist residency can offer in the contemporary Latin American art scene. Understanding the diversity of agents involved in the system of art, from artists, public and private managers, as well as independent initiatives, the model of artist residencies has generated alternatives to traditional production models for works of art. It will be noticed how these possibilities hold new tools for the artistic system and propose a new way of giving value to artistic practices, from what has been called “the collecting of place”.

The ´ace artist residency program is a part of residencias_en_red since March 2011 and is pleased to invite all of you to this event.

residencias_en_red [iberoamérica] is an Ibero American platform of spaces working with research, production and exhibition of contemporary art and culture, connected particularly through its residency programs. It brings together different formats of art residencies and enhances its diversity. It is formed by private or public-private initiatives with various administrative and legal structures. The network was created in 2008 through an aspiration for Latin American integration and a desire for collaboration and collective work among its members so to strengthen representation and communication at the micro and macro level of international cultural policy.

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.
