Self-portraits 9

19.07.17 19.08.17

The Self-Portraits project is a collection of international artworks developed under the direction of Alicia Candiani with the original idea of bringing 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 and Sweden, as well as Kansas City, Montclair and Anchorage, Alaska in the United States to develop the project.

The current exhibition (ninth session in the series) was made possible through a generous funding  from Montclair State University in New Jersey. The works on display were produced during Candiani’s “Scholar in Residence” sponsored by the Global Education Center in Spring 2016, where she  conducted a workshop with students. The mixed media portrait images brings together the works of nine students and faculty artists from diverse backgrounds and was produced under the co-direction of Candiani and Professor Catherine Bebout.

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.
