[Palimpsest Project] Mural Painting Residency
Interweaving images...

The Palimpsest Project is a mural painting residency conceived as a “work in progress”. Recovering palimpsest word original meaning, our terrace becomes a living organism in which the artists paint their murals by dialoguing, intervening or overlapping with the previous ones.

Noun ‘pa-ləm(p)-sest, pə-ˈlim(p)-: a very old document on which the original writing has been erased and replaced with new writing. Something that has changed over time and shows evidence of that change.

Palimpsesto is a project in constant mutation, in which artists are encouraged to superimpose their murals or interlace them with the previous ones, achieving a new awakening of what was already on the wall. More than an individual work, the murals express the superposition of many hands, residences and artists. These actions are considered a way to embrace and, at the same time, demystify the work of the other.

These residences are aimed to career or emerging visual artists, with a special interest in muralism and / or urban art. Groups of up to 2 members can apply together to work collaboratively. In addition, in these residences there is the possibility of working collectively collaborating with other residents or local artists, as well as carrying out additional projects in mural festivals or in public spaces in the City of Buenos Aires.

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

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.
