Buenos Aires, Argentina
Atelier Mondial Exchange since:
Argentina’s capital city Buenos Aires is one of the most active cities in Latin America, with a culturally rich life that is famous for its cinematic and literary trips as well as its experimental theatre and the diverse tango shows. A new awakening has been noticeable in museums and galleries for some time, which is detectable in the establishment of the Off- and Halfoff art rooms.
The URRA Tigre premises are located in a former factory building that has been converted and renovated for the residency programme. URRA offers single en-suite rooms for a maximum of six international guest artists, a shared kitchen with a dining room, library as well as a spacious studio area, which is shared by the guest artists. Furthermore, it is possible to use the neighbouring empty halls for creating larger works.
Since 2012, Atelier Mondial has worked in cooperation with the residency programme URRA, founded and managed by Melina Berkenwald, which has had its own premises since 2016. In the Tigre district, located on Buenos Aires’ periphery and by the Río Luján River, known for its status as an aspiring cultural district, surrounded by more art and culture spaces, URRA has pitched more tents. A regular exchange with the centre of Buenos Aires is ensured by URRA through different activities, such as visits by institutions, private art collections, conversations with artists, etc.
