Colectivo R.A.R.O

Colectivo R.A.R.O

R.A.R.O itinerant residency program

Colectivo R.A.R.O. was born in Buenos Aires, in early 2014, resulting from its founders’ interest to generate spaces for reflection and production for artists, curators, and cultural managers. R.A.R.O. proposes an Itinerant Residency program that currently extends to Madrid.

Since its inception, the R.A.R.O. team has formed a solid base of local artists’ ateliers in which other artists can come to develop their own projects. Currently, it has a total of 17 adjoining spaces in Buenos Aires, each of them directed by artists of wide and medium trajectory, from different disciplines.

How does it work? The key element to R.A.R.O.’s Itinerant Residencies is the opportunity to create, collaborate and travel through various artist spaces during the residence period.

The resident can work in a minimum of 2 ateliers for at least 3 weeks and deepen into one or several techniques. During your stay, you can feature their work, have contact with local artists, curators, collectors, etc., and finally, you will be given the opportunity of generating an audiovisual record of the whole process and show the final work in the form of either an open studio or an exhibition.

R.A.R.O.’s Residencies are aimed at artists, curators, and cultural managers, both emerging and established, national or international coming from all disciplines who are interested in itinerant residences and who want to share ateliers with local artists for artwork production.

The duration of each residence varies according to the schedules established by the interested artists and by the R.A.R.O. ateliers. Stays are at least 3 weeks long and have no maximum time.


During their residency, artists may show their work, get in contact with local artists, curators and collectors among other art related enthusiasts. At the end of the residency, artists will have the opportunity to show their final work either as an Open studio or exhibition.
