‘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.

We offer different types of residencies in order to best fit to each artist and project’s interest and needs:
PRODUCTION | EXPLORATION | SUB30 (for artists under 30 with a special fee) | Palimpsest (for mural painting) | Micro-residency (short format of 5 days)

Production residencies [4 weeks]: intended to produce new work, a project or a site-specific installation with the possibility to show the finished work at the end of the stay. We welcome all kind of projects and encourage submitting those that question the singularity of the art object by using new media, design and/or their interfaces, blurring their boundaries.

Exploration residencies [4 weeks]: 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.
