Within the framework of the International Project, LITHOBAIRES ´09 will be developed, a project directed by Jeff Sippel, former Educational Director and masterprinter of the renowned lithography center Tamarind Institute of New Mexico, which will take place from July 22 to August 2, 2009.

Sippel is currently an Associate Professor at the University of Missouri-St. Louis from United States. His experience in traditional lithography and water lithography has led him to hold exhibitions, workshops, conferences and demonstrations at many universities and in countries such as Germany, Mexico, Canada, Finland, Belgium, Bulgaria, India, Poland, Chile, South Africa, Venezuela , Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and Colombia. He has worked in collaboration with more than a hundred artists from around the world. He helped organize and run the professional workshop in Lamspringe, Germany “Quensen”.

His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. His work is part of the main private and public collections.

LITHOBAIRES will begin on July 22 with the opening of the exhibition New Wings / Nuevos Aires in which lithographs of the invited international artists will be exhibited. A series of activities are planned for the participating artists. The activities will conclude with a 5-day workshop in which Sippel will demonstrate graphic techniques that also include a time of personal experimentation on waterless lithography techniques which can be carried out in workshops that have an intaglio press. It is a workshop dedicated especially for art teachers and artists who wish to achieve the qualities of traditional lithography but who do not have the specific equipment to do so.

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.
