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-personalized support from the Residencia Corazón team.
Our 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. But our A.i.R. Program 1 (with exhibition), the minimum period required is one month.
Our house is yours. Residencia Corazón provides individual room as well as an artist studio and gallery.
Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
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. Our house has 3 workspaces. Also because of its large size, many artists choose to work in their room. Many residents also choose to work in our particular city and its diversity of locations (parks, forests, river, architecture, streets, etc.).
Fees and support
We have a fee, although we always try not to make it an impediment to the artist’s participation. The final amount is agreed individually with each resident, depending on the program and length of stay at the residency (fee amounts range from usd or eur $700 to $1,500 per month), we are open to discuss. For artists applying for grants and scholarships in their home country, RC can provide official documents and letters of invitation as needed. RC is an independent project with institutional support, but unfortunately we are now unable to provide financial support to visiting artists.
Residencia Corazon 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.
