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 following institutions, universities, embassies, cultural and art spaces have sponsored residents and projects at ´ace in the past:
