The Residency Program offers artists and art, culture and education professionals time and space for research, production and exchange with the art scene in Buenos Aires and, in particular, with the work processes and content programming of the Museo Moderno and its team of professionals specialized in areas such as curatorship, heritage management, museography and exhibition production, conservation, education, publications, among others.

 

On this occasion, the national call for production, training and research residencies for artists and professionals in the arts, culture and education is open. Residencies will be granted for the periods August-December 2024 and March-June 2025. The duration of the residency may be a minimum of 14 days and a maximum of 29 days, depending on the needs of the project presented. This program offers a unique opportunity to its residents: they will be able to explore their ideas, develop projects or artistic productions, research or training and experimentation experiences.

 

During this process, residents will be encouraged to interact through meetings, observation and dialogue with members of the different departments of the Museo Moderno. In addition, contacts with other curators, professionals and artists active in the City of Buenos Aires will be generated.

 

The call is open to Argentine artists and art, culture and education professionals, and foreigners who have been living in the country for three years or more. Those residing in the City of Buenos Aires and its metropolitan area are not eligible to apply. Those selected must be able to participate and be involved in the artistic and cultural context of the Museo Moderno and the City of Buenos Aires. With this in mind, each applicant must submit a proposal describing their interests in the Casa Alberto Heredia Residency, and their preliminary proposal or project to be developed during their stay.

 

The decision will be made by a selection jury composed of Francisco Lemus (head of the curatorial department of the Museo Moderno), Jimena Ferreiro (curator, Museo Moderno), Raúl Flores (curator, Museo Moderno), Cintia Mezza (specialist in Collections Management and Art Archives, Klemm Foundation) and Mónica Giron (artist).
