Together Apart

NEST | Cohort #2
A shelter for artistic practices

14.10.20 04.11.20

The word NIDO involves many meanings that can be used metaphorically as triggers of our work in this shelter of artistic practices: it is the perfect metaphor of origin, it is a womb, it is the place where the primeval egg that gives rise to life is placed. It is an incubator where something is procreated and is related to what nourishes and gives life, but also where harmful things are incubated or accumulated. The nest is bed and it is shelter. Nests are a network and houses are nests. The largest nest is the planet we inhabit (and which has shown us that it senses us as a threat), which we must take care of and with which we must connect.


NIDO is a new cohort of the Together Apart Program, this time in Spanish. We could not be happier to continue our mission in these difficult times.

In this Spanish-speaking NIDO we have Latin American artists from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Costa Rica, Mexico and Spain; three Argentine artists who have lived for a long time in Canada, the United States and Germany and a Venezuelan artist living in Orlando, United States, with artistic practices that range from drawing, sculpture, painting, engraving, photography, textile art, illustration, installations, design, digital media, video, mapping to performance, theater, literature, research, and community art projects.

ABOUT TOGETHER APART

Together Apart is a shelter for artistic practices that seeks to support the international artistic and cultural community and, at the same time, promote collective research projects and inter and trans-disciplinary experimentation.

From Proyecto´ace we are re-imagining our ways of building artistic communities and expanding the possibilities of our interconnectivity. If crises are opportunities, the pandemic not only allowed us to understand the vital importance of the arts and artists in our global society, but it also crystallized art itself as a tool that allows us to overcome isolation and physical distance.

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.
