Deadline: Open call

RESIDENCY for MURAL PAINTING @ Buenos Aires, Argentina

Call for mural painters interested to develop their work within an AiR International Program.

Palimpsest is a mural painting residency that invites artists to produce a mural painting in the ‘ace terrace. An International Project/work in progress that was started along 2014 based in the mural that the Colombian artist Felipe Garcia painted in our terrace during his residency.

Palimpsest is an on-going project in constant mutation in which artists are encouraged to overlap, erase, cover, achieving a new rise of what was already in the wall. This action is considered both a way to embrace and demystify the work of the other.

AN OPPORTUNITY TO
- Paint a mural in a space which presents the challenge of previous murals painted by former artists-in- residence

- Present a mural to the artistic community of Buenos Aires
- Meet local muralists or street artists and develop a mural in collaboration.

CANDIDATES
o Career as well as emerging visual artists with a special interest in mural painting and street art.

o Individual as well as groups of up to 2 artists are encouraged to apply together working in collaboration.
