Daniela Ruíz Moreno
Curator-in-Residence 2020


“´ace has been the cosmos where I understood for the first time the values ​​and ethics of working in collaboration, exchange and professionalism. It is the ideal space where I have been able to offer my historical / theoretical knowledge, bring it to life, modify it and expand it; where they have given me the possibility and confidence to grow and experiment. ‘Ace has that quality of becoming a place of belonging, in a family for those who have the fortune to know it.” DRM

After working with us since 2012 and serving as Project and Residencies Coordinator from 2014 to 2018, Daniela Ruiz Moreno returns to ´ace with a new international experience in England and China. Invited as Curator in Residence, Daniela joins in the new international projects that we are developing.


I was born and raised in the cities that border the Río de la Plata. My practice encompasses activities related to management, curation, research and communication. I have worked and studied mainly in Buenos Aires but in continuous contact with other countries in Europe and Asia.

For several years I coordinated the ‘ace Artists-in-Residence International Program of the Fundación ‘ace para el Arte Contemporáneo. In those years, within ‘ace and other spaces, I accompanied processes of self-expression and creation of artists dedicated to various disciplines. Through these conversations and collaborations, I experience the possibility of my own expression.

I am affected by sound art, music, noise and durational practices. I produce projects and events that articulate those interests of my own and those of friends, some of these were Larga Vida a la Nueva Carne and Jornadas Subliminales. I am also interested in artistic processes that draw into the therapeutic, that assume the therapeutic side of art but do not stop there. I was able to work in relation to that at the Tate Exchange, an arts and social action program at Tate Modern, London.

So far I have worked with artists whose practices are made up of apparently small movements, where an affective bond with pre-existing objects is made explicit, where there is no large production of structures but rather there is a repositioning, re-understanding of objects, gestures and actions of everyday life. I am interested in generating meetings of small groups of people in which daily actions are shared. I generate situations of encounter for practitioners where their knowledge and practices are combined.

I am currently working independently, making follow-ups of artists’ processes and developing research projects related to art on the Internet.

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.
