Residencia Epecuén forma parte de in Argentina

RESIDENCIA EPECUÉN invites you to apply for its 16th edition, which will take place from November 25th, 2024, on the shores of Lake Epecuén in Buenos Aires, Argentina, intended for artists, researchers, and curators interested in situated practices.

The purpose of this residency is to provide a space for creation and reflection around the ruins of Epecuén, its lagoon, and the city of Carhué. Participants will explore the context through field research and training proposals, promoting exchange, debate, and critical thinking in a group coexistence of fourteen days.

The training program includes workshops and theoretical classes focused on situated practices, support, debates, and production support, and an exhibition of processes open to the community.

We encourage the participation of artists, curators, and researchers from various backgrounds and ages, promoting the exchange and development of processes.

The residency promotes the exploration of individual and/or collective poetics within the Argentine pampas, contributing to enrich the historical, social, cultural, and environmental heritage. We create opportunities for dialogue and exchange between residents and the Carhué community, understanding contemporary art as a means to rethink, question, and work on memory, territory, identity, ruin, landscape, among others.

Participation in the program offers the possibility of follow-up for projects, promotion, exhibition, and commercialization of work, encouraging dialogue between residents and the local and international art scene.

Application deadline: August 1st

We invite artists, curators, researchers, and national and international collectives to apply, who address their work in relation to Art and Territory.

Interested parts must present a project or line of work to develop during the residency that considers the historical, geographical, social, environmental, and/or cultural context.

Residencia Epecuén offers an open program to work with the ephemeral, the specific site, interventions, performance, sound art, photography, video, research projects, sculpture, ceramics, drawing, painting, writing, and other mediums related to contemporary art.

The works and projects proposed for development on-site must preserve historical sites and, in no case, damage or alter the cultural or natural heritage of these sites.

To apply, you must be over 18 years old, have research and/or artistic production interests that interact with the environment.

Accommodation will be provided in a house with shared rooms, a bathroom, and a kitchen.

The residency has access to a ceramics workshop in Carhué and the use of a wood-fired kiln.

Video and photography records of the processes carried out during the residency will be made, which will be part of the residency’s archive and used for promotion in future exhibition instances, such as museums, fairs, and exhibitions.

The residency will be published on social networks, the Residencia Epecuén website, and in press releases to showcase the work of the participating artists.

The works carried out in each edition integrate and make up the residence’s archive. This archive is used for presentation, dissemination, and promotion of the project within the framework of exhibition venues such as museums, fairs, and cultural entities.

The residency includes workplace accident insurance for participants.
