Artists-in-residence are selected by their submitted proposals according to the availability of the intended period and the manner in which each artist and his/her project would interact with other fellow residents and their projects. ´ace pays special attention to those projects questioning the singularity of the art object by using the reproducible capacity of traditional and/or experimental printmaking techniques, photography, digital tools, new media and/or design, exploring their mutual interference and hybridizations, as well as those proposals that attempt to make interventions in the urban environment. Qualified candidates from all countries and nationalities are encouraged to apply. The ´ace team is bilingual Spanish/English. There is no application fee. Applicants should:
The ´acePIRAR | Artist-in-Residence International Program aims to support contemporary artistic practices (including performance art and curatorial proposals) through research and production residencies, promoting exchange, debate, experimentation and collaborative work. It's a program that provides with time, space and guidance to explore different mediums, while it connects the artists with the art scene of Buenos Aires. To be in residence at ´ace means to work collaboratively, to receive technical and artistic assistance and to be immersed in a vibrant city's cultural life.
While in residence, the artists will benefit from an intense production time enhanced by the exchange of ideas and experiences with peers. Ace pays special attention to those projects questioning the singularity of the art object by using the reproducible capacity of traditional and/or experimental printmaking techniques, photography, new media and/or design, exploring their mutual interference and hybridizations, as well as those proposals that attempt to make interventions in the urban environment.
The artists-in-residence are expected to work on a specific project and present results (Production Residency) or to do their own research without a specific outcome (Exploration Residency). In both cases, presented projects for residency periods are plausible to mutate and evolve through experiences acquired within the residency periods.
Final exhibitions by resident artists are optional, artist talks are encouraged if residents want to give them and open studio instances to foster exchange with local artist community are available in the space upon conversation with resident artists.
Residents may choose to stay at one of Fundación´ace's apartment or choose their own accommodation.
