About the Residency
The selected artists will have, at all times, a personal assistant -a specific coordinator for this program- who will provide them with all the necessary help for the correct development of the project.
The residency space, as well as the shared places with Gabelich Contemporáneo Art Gallery, will be available to the residents.
In accordance with the presented project, visits to local artists’ workshops and/or different cultural places or places belonging to social agents will be arranged if their interests are concerned with such themes.
Priority will be given to projects presented by artists who consider Sector04 project framework [see project]. However, this is by no means exclusive.
Once a week the artist/s will meet with curators, artists, managers, art galleries and managers from the city of Rosario and Buenos Aires to ponder the process carried out in the Residency.
Artists will also participate in two PAC editions held in the Gallery.
PAC Project is a training space for artists who seek to enrich, through dialogue with diverse agents and experts, their own practice in an annual program consisting on analysis, criticism and art production meetings. PAC proposes and encourages collaborative work in a network that focuses on the importance of interdisciplinary work. [Link to PAC page]
Open call for submissions from:
Visual artists, Curators, Researchers, Journalists, Filmmakers, Urban activists – Change Makers, Creatives, inspired by urban movements, and activists concerned with sustainable technologies that find public space as a means for deep thinking about environmental protection and ecology, as well as civic and cultural education, social problems and cultural policies. They must have an active role in the search for good practices and solutions for modern cities.
We will also receive action plans that link the mentioned topics with the different lines of work to be developed in our space.
