Call for Exploration Residency for the ´aceAIR International Program in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

´acePIRAR Artist-in-Residence International Program aims to support all kind of contemporary artistic practices (including performance and curatorial proposals) through research and production residencies, promoting the exchange, debate, experimentation and collaborative work. A program that provides time, space and guidance to explore expanded as well as traditional print media, while it connects the artists with the art scene of Buenos Aires, Argentina, one of the Latin America cultural capitals.

intended to emphasise the process over the presentation of the results, encouraging residents to get inspiration from the new experiences achieved through the interaction with other residents and the cultural environment that the city of Buenos Aires provides.

The program encompasses a period of 4-weeks. Slots can be selected here. Artists can apply for any slot for next year among those posted at the website. Residency working time starts on first Monday at 10am and ends on last Friday at 6pm.

We look for INDEPENDENT RESEARCH proposals (even when they will have tutorials from the ‘ace team) in any discipline of visual arts, design or curatorship.
a) Established as well as emerging visual artists, designers and performers from all disciplines within the visual arts that are able to work or to research independently (there is not access to the print studio, common materials or specific tools in this category)
b) Established as well as emerging curators who want to have time and space for studying and writing or to do research in our library specialised in print, photography and digital media, while being immersed in a unique cultural environment. 
NOTE: There is not a minimum or maximum age to apply for a residency (although there is a lower fee for artists younger than 30 years old), as well as there is not discrimination regarding country of origin, race, language or gender identity when candidates are selected.

Artists have two different possibilities of lodging:
A) Aloj´ace are our two guesthouses which are located in different points of the city, both very handy to come to the 'ace studio. One is only 8 blocks (5 minutes walk) in the Belgrano R neighbourghood. The other one is only 15 minutes away by train, in the city center, around many cultural attractions.  Both apartments are equipped to accommodate artists and curators, fully furnished with a full kitchen and bath and all cost (Internet WI-FI, cable television, local phone usage, cleaning, linen and utilities) included. Each apartment can receive up to two artists or a single artist with accompaniment.
B) The artist may arrange its own lodging by renting an apartment, staying with friends or in hostels, hotels, B&B, etc. Buenos Aires is a city that offers many lodging options.

The 'ace team will help you to get around the city, suggest cultural events, contact you with artits, curators, colleagues who could collaborate with your project, etc. Artists will receive a public transport card + local cellphone.

Artists who choose the Exploration residency work in The Tower: a quiet and luminous studio located on the second floor with open view, accessibly by a spiral staircase. It is ideal to research, study, write and create.

Non application fee. The production residency has a basic fee and the artist can select other options: lodging, materials or technical assistance. Basic fee covers studio space, access to equipment. The residency fee does not include travel, health insurance and shipping expenses.
