Institutional support and partners

Fundación´ace para el Arte Contemporáneo is an independent, non-governmental and non-profit organization, officially registered with and protected by the IGJ-General Ministry of Justice and Human Rights of Argentina, without public or private funding for its fixed expenses. However, ´ace has been able to conduct their activities through the personal and institutional efforts of the global art community members. Generously, they have offered their time, logistics, sponsorship or funding, providing the residents with the opportunity to develop their projects with us. We have also been able to offer scholarships for residencies and training to Argentine artists in our house or, through exchange agreements with other international institutions, to travel, work and training at a partner institution.

Fundación´ace para el Arte Contemporáneo has signed permanent exchange agreements with The Strzemiński Academy of Art Łódź, Poland and Guanlan Original Printmaking Base in Shenzhen, China. In addition, since 2016, ´ace has maintained an agreement with ARKO, the Korean Art Council of South Korea, to host two Korean artists annually among the ´acePIRAR | Artist-in-Residence International  Program, both of which are selected through an open call in their country of origin.

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.
