"Call for Artists: Argentina Cultural Exchange Residency"
2004-04-28 until 2004-05-17
Atlantic Center for the Arts
New Smyrna Beach, FL,
USA United States of America
From September 6 - 26, 2004 (Application Deadline: May 17, 2004) the Atlantic Center for the Artsis hosting an Argentina Cultural Exchange Residency featuring Pablo de Santis, writer;
Luis Felipe Noe, visual artist; and
Julio Martin Viera, composer. Since 1982, Atlantic Center's residency program has provided artists from all artistic disciplines with spaces to live, work, and collaborate during three-week residencies.
Located just four miles from the east coast beaches of central Florida, the pine and palmetto wooded environment contains award-winning studios that include a resource library, painting studio, sculpture studio, music studio, dance studio, black box theater, writer's studio, and digital computer lab. Each residency session includes three master artists of different disciplines. The master artists each personally select a group of associates - talented, emerging artists - through an application process administered by ACA. During the residency, artists participate in informal sessions with their group, collaborate on projects, and work independently on their own projects. The relaxed atmosphere and unstructured program provide considerable time for artistic regeneration and creation. Atlantic Center for the Arts provides housing (private room/bath with work desk), weekday meals (provided by ACA chef) and shared studio space.
The international cultural exchange residencies, a part of ACA's history since the first exchange with France in 1989, offers participants the opportunity to engage in intense creative dialogue crossing cultural boundaries and to provide deeper understanding of those cultures and their art forms. As part of the 2004 Argentina Cultural Exchange Residency, the three Argentine Master Artists will each select four Argentine Associate Artists and four other artists from the US and abroad to participate in the three week program. A total of 24 artists will be accepted (eight in each discipline) into the residency. This residency is sponsored, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Florida Department of State/Division of Cultural Affairs, and the Argentine Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
