Anne Heyvaert
Artista invitada

Anne Heyvaert was born in the United States, lived in Belgium and in France where she was trained, currently residing in Spain. She is an artist, teacher and researcher. She has developed her creative activity, mainly in graphic techniques, but also in drawing and painting.

Her biographical journey fuels her artistic production displayed in thematic series: Objects and wrappers, Moving boxes, Boxes on cardboard, Maps on maps, From Memphis to Finisterre, Kaleidoscopy Maps, etc. Technical experimentation is another engine of the evolution of his work: the graphic techniques of reproduction (matrix, repetition, variation) lead him into a greater questioning about the representation (as it unfolds and unfolds) of his own multiple and fragmentary reality.

As part of our program of guest artists, Anne Heyvaert (Spain) visits us this week to join the program of development for local artists inQubarte. The group of sponsored visual artists is developing proposals around the VISIBLE-INVISIBLE concepts.

In this context, Anne will lead a week of meetings in which also participate as guests Rafael Toriz (Mexico) and Denise Najmanovich(epistemologists, focused on the complex and contemporary thought, Professor of Interdisciplinary PhD in Social Sciences, UNER, Parana, Argentina.). This meetings search to reflect practically and theoretically on the topic and work as a way of joining each artists process, open different paths of conceptual and technical exploration and promote opportunities for exchange and international connections.

In her week at ‘ace, Anne Heyvaert will dictate Entre pliegues (Between folds), a theoretical and practical seminar on the crease and wide possibility of technical developments from the graphics around that concept. The artist understands the practice of multiple work from its procedural methodology based on a phenomenology of complexity: action, interaction, feedback. Recalling the etymological root of the word “complexity” from the Latin “plexus” (folded, interlacing …) she will reflect around the words derived from the same roots PLE PLI: folding, unfolding, duplicate, involve, complicated, complex, accomplice … and its involvement with the INVISIBLE / VISIBLE concepts.

The Fold-Le Pli-El Pliego
Anne Heyvaert

18.04.16 01.09.16

Proyecto´ace has been invited as one of the participating art centres for the international project EL PLIEGO / doble desdoblado (THE FOLD / double unfolded), the 3rd project of creation and international exchange between universities and educational centres in the graphic arts and edition, organised by the Grupo dx5 of the Universidad de Vigo in Pontevedra, Spain in collaboration with the Department of Philosophy and the Arts, University of Quebec in Canada.

This project aims to continue the promotion of cultural movement across borders that printmaking allows (multiplication, versatility and transportability), revaluing the book format from its base module: the fold.

Artists, teachers and art students participated in a project that aims to reflect on the idea of the fold, taking the space of a sheet as the starting point and the encounter that these fold causes.

Critical Mass
Group Exhibition

30.11.13 24.01.14

Since November 30, 2013, the Critical Mass exhibition was on display for 2 months in ´ace Foundation for Contemporary Art’s Sala Políglota, an International Exchange of portfolios organized by Nathaniel Stern (Professor of Art and Design at the School of the Arts at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, and Research Associate at the University of Johannesburg College of Art, Design and Architecture Research Center) and Rhianna Andrews from the University of Milwaukee in the United States.

The portfolio includes forty artists, all published in Richard Noyce’s books Printmaking at the Edge (2006 | 2008) and Critical Mass: Printmaking Beyond the Edge (2010). The portfolio “explores the evolutionary techniques and approaches, strategies and materials that are used in and with contemporary forms of printing. It is a project of artists – explorers who put hands to work: with ink, metal and stone, with politics and pop culture and characters, and in the bits, bytes and code of new technologies. Artists cross borders with new ways of thinking, doing and collaborating. “

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.
