Jacqueline Nicholas participated in a production micro-Residency, during which she designed and printed posters taking inspiration in classical illustration and referencing to the struggle for the legalization of abortion in Argentina. Jackie pasted the posters in the public space of Buenos Aires and Vancouver, once she returned to her city.

My experience with visual imagery is forever evolving. I feel overwhelmed by the constant societal inundation of visual language. However, it is this artwork—graphic, punchy, propaganda-like and playful— that is the catalyst to the progression of my practice. Artwork that evokes adolescence, that contains humor, but which depicts more complex commentary than first meets the eye, is what I am drawn to most. I am inspired by vintage still framed cartoons and hand drawn comics. It amazes me that such simple decisions can exude such complex emotion.

It’s valuable for the artist to consider images that can engage both a child and a mature adult. I aim to reach a broad audience while simultaneously portraying themes that challenge the individual to think critically, be it about social values or politics.

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.
