Exploration Residencies
Provoking experimentation...

The Exploration Residences provides 4 weeks artistic “time out” emphasizing the process over the presentation of the results. This format encourages residents to get inspiration from the new experiences achieved through the interaction with other residents and the rich cultural environment that the city of Buenos Aires provides.

The Exploration Residences are part of a professional program that assists residents with the research resources and local contacts necessary for their specific projects. Participants receive reviews of their projects by specialized professionals and enrich themselves with the vision of the ´ace team, as well as colleagues-in-residence, during our frequent “Brainstorming” meetings. For their part, SUB30 residents also receive academic tutoring and critiques.

These residencies are aimed to professional and emerging artists/performers, that come from any discipline within the Visual Arts, who can work independently in a visual, sound or performance research. Curators or art historians who want to have a space for reflection and take advantage of our expertises and library (specialized in photography, print and digital media) to research, study or write, while being immersed in an extraordinary and challenging cultural environment.

Because we firmly believe that diversity enriches us, the artists selected in our Exploration Residency Program does not discriminated against by age, race, skin color, gender, national origin, religion, creed, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

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.
