Artists in Dialogue

16.10.19 15.11.19

On October 16, the International Self-Portraits Project was inaugurated at Proyecto´ace’s Políglota Room, with the presence of Joseph Scheer, professor and co-director of the Institute of Electronic Arts (IEA) at Alfred University and Aodi Liang, Associate Researcher at the same university. Both of them traveled to Buenos Aires to carry out different activities, which included giving a lecture within the framework of the MFA- Master of Electronic Arts at UNTREF/University of Tres de Febrero (Scheer) and an production residence at Proyecto´ace (Liang).

The Self-Portraits Project is a collection of international artworks developed under the direction of Argentinean artist Alicia Candiani, whose original idea was to bring together artists from diverse cultures to visually explore the theoretically complex issues of self-representation as a means of identity. After its launch date in 2006, Alicia has been invited by nine art institutions from Argentina,  Mallorca and Cuenca in Spain, Brazil, Canada, Sweden as well as Kansas City, Montclair and Anchorage, Alaska in the United States to execute the project.

In 2018, during her stay in the Expanded Media Division of Alfred University in New York, USA, Alicia developed the topic of self-representation during a semester with her students among the Artists’ Multiples course. Joseph Scheer and Andrew Deutsch, a sound artist and Director of the Expanded Media Division, participated as guest artists. Along with them, other teachers from the division such as Judy Livingston (Associate Professor Graphic Design), William Contino (Associate Professor Expanded Media) and Myles Calvert (Visiting Faculty Art & Design) joined the project with their self-representations.

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.
