Together Apart | Cohort # 2 | English
A temporary shelter for artistic practices


This ARTshelter offers its participants with a time and a (mind) space to overpower the adversities that the artistic community is facing today, delivering tools and resources both individual and collective.

[During August/September 2020 we have developed the Cohort # 1 with a strong group of participants from North and South America; Europe; Middle East and Australia, is going on with campers whose expertise embrace a wide range of artistic practices and disciplines: fine arts (including drawing, printmaking, painting and sculpture); installation; photography; video and sound; fashion and textile design; graphic design; performance; dance and choreography as well as philosophy of art, communication and writing. Due to the great success of  COHORT #1, we are happy to launch the Cohort #2.]

Together apart… we are stronger!

This ARTshelter is aimed at artists, curators and researchers who, in these pandemic times, are:
– Looking forward to take advantage of a time “in between” to build knowledge, acquire new tools and establish an international network of professional colleagues.
– Having difficulties to advance with their artistic production due to isolation, lockdown or a lack of contact with the artistic community
– Looking for new ways to approach their practice and adapt to the new times that we’re all going through on a global scale
– Struggling to find the necessary motivation that drives their projects forward

This ARTbootcamp will help participants in their need to:
– Overcome the initial halt in their practice and gain productive momentum.
– Join forces with peers and work with others –whether it is collaboratively or individually by mutual feedback–, which will contribute to enhance individual resources in order to beat the current limitations.
– Make the most out of the transition between studio practice and online creative and productive formats.
– Gain access to a new, international and specialized public.
– Build an international network with colleagues, which can then flourish in future projects to broaden their reach and possibilities.

At the end of this ARTshelter, participants will get:
– GUIDANCE | An individual session for feedback on your work, your performance during the Bootcamp and future steps for your career with ´ace‘s director and members of the team
– ADVISE | On international programs, art spaces, residencies and open calls that are suited to your profile

– VISIBILITY | A professional profile in ´ace‘s website with your information and the details of the work produced during the Bootcamp

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.
