April/May 2018 residency program
Six-week collaborative work in Buenos Aires for international and local artists and researchers.
April 16 – May 27
The program is structured to create a space of creative exchange for a group of international and local artist, curators, and researchers.
For this program, we invite Gema Melgar, Matadero Madrid residency coordinator, to work with the group and propose specific activities. Residents also have the assistance of both a production coordinator and the directors of the project, Carolina Magnin and Pablo Caligaris.
The residency culminates in an open studio which is an integral part of our program of exhibitions. The schedule of activities also includes visits to relevant art spaces in Buenos Aires, open presentations of the participants, and visits from other educational programs, artists, curators, and critics.
Participants are expected to contribute actively during the workshop and research activities in addition to sharing their individual experiences with other residents.
