Open Call #1 PROYECTO´ACE |´ACE PIRAR
PROYECTO´ACE |´ACE PIRAR is an AiR International Program founded by Alicia Candiani in 2005, located in the Barrio de Colegiales in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The program acts as both, a platform for production and reflection on contemporary artistic practices and a link between the invited artists and the City of Buenos Aires´ rich cultural community. Through production, research and urban-community intervention residencies, it fosters interrelationships t with other artists and contexts, promoting exchange, discussion, experimentation and collaborative work. At the same time, the programme generates and expands artistic-cultural networks at national and international level.
'Ace's flagship residence encourages the exploration of ground-breaking forms in contemporary artistic practices by offering facilities and support to produce new projects. This residency offers 4 weeks of artistic ‘time out’ in one of the world’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities. Artists may work on individual or collaborative projects proposed by themselves.
The Production Residencies aims to support emerging and career artists within the Visual Arts for the production/creation of either new works (which may include an exhibition/site-specific installation) or a work in progress adapted for the local context. All kinds of projects are welcome.
However, due to its facilities and expertise, ´ace pays special attention to those proposals that question the singularity of the art object by using the reproducible capacity of printmaking, photography, new media, design, and/or their interfaces, blurring their boundaries.
The programme is intended to foster personal vision by offering professional and emerging artists a unique opportunity to create without interruption. ´ace team and associated professionals do support the creative process by way of facilities, mentorships, and services in the creative studio. The residents will expand their art and experience by making contact with Argentine and other international artists while working in the dynamic environment that the city of Buenos Aires provides.
