The Residencia Corazón – Artist in Residency (A-I-R) Program was initiated in 2006. Its main objective engenders the creation of a personalized and independent exchange among regional, national and international artists. It allows for mutual enrichment through professional and emotive approaches for new experiences and aesthetic realities. The resident / visiting artists enjoy a dynamic and vibrant time frame for working; they have a studio and living space at their disposal to complete their projects. They also network with and within the local art community, cultural institutions and the public at large.
Residencia Corazón offers a complete international Artist in Residency Program. Each artist, curator or writer receives exclusive and highly-personalised support from the Residencia Corazón team.
The project is characterized by trying a close, intimate relationship with each resident, proposing that the stay transcends the artistic purpose and that their journey is printed as a learning adventure that they will treasure throughout their lives.
Duration of residency
15 days onwards, artists can choose their stay. For the A.i.R. Program 1 (with an exhibition) however, the minimum period required is 1 month.
Residencia Corazón provides big individual rooms as well as an artist studio and gallery.
Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
The program is open to emerging and established artists from all disciplines within the visual arts. It is also open to emerging and established writers & curators from all disciplines – from novelists, non-fiction writers, screenwriters to playwrights. Personal assistance.
Studio / Workspace
Thanks to the configuration of the space, artists are able combine their stay and production within the same residence and in great conditions. The residency house has 3 workspaces. Also because its large size, many artists choose to work in their rooms.
Many artists also choose to work in other spaces or areas of the city as location-stage (institutions, river beach, downtown, walls, etc).
Fees and support
The program has a fee of ca. USD $ 700 x month. Residencia Corazón is an independent project with institutional support but currently unable to provide financial support for visiting artists. For artists applying for grants and scholarships in their home country Residencia Corazón can provide official documents and letters of invitation as necessary. Residencia Corazón has the institutional support of the National Culture Secretary, Cultural Institute of the Province of Buenos Aires, the Town Council of La Plata and the National University of La Plata.
