Portfolio Reviews and Critiques
The other's gaze ...

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards”. [ Steve Jobs]

The  Portfolio Reviews & Critique Program has been developing for more than 10 years. This program aims to promote the opening of new spaces and opportunities for the development of personal work by meeting participants with leading artists, curators and critics from the local and international art scene.

In 2009-2010 the program was called “The number 10”. Thus, ten of the most expert figures and referents of contemporary art held individual meetings and interviews with the artists, who had the opportunity to share their ideas and projects, in addition to receiving specialized criticism of their work with the aim of finding alternatives, development and promotion. The Program was structured in 10 months (from March to December) with one curator / artist per month, making a total of 10 sessions per year.

Over time, the program was enriched with group critiques and review, in Pecha Kucha presentation format, for those under 35 years old, allowing emerging artists to join this new dynamic, which is also considered as an instance of collective learning. This program is also related to others such as those of Scholarships and Volunteering, since many times international guests are called to carry out the revision of portfolios for Argentine artists, who are selected by open call and awarded scholarships for this activity.

Directed by Alicia Candiani, this program is open all year and  You can contact us at #contact or periodically review the open calls for this activity.

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.
