Artist Programme 2015

Call for Applications

The Programa de Artistas of the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella in Buenos Aires, Argentina is a one-year programme that provides visual artists, critics, and curators with an intensive experience in which to reflect on and produce contemporary art. The seventh edition of the programme has three fundamental features:

  • A group of approximately eighteen artists and six curators/critics. The aim of this coexistence is to provide a unique opportunity for exchange, whereby the practices and positions pivotal to the arts are explored critically in the framework of an intense and shared experience of discussion and collaboration.
  • The programme includes a central seminar geared to reflection on the work of each participant, workshops for experimentation in different methodologies, and a series of theoretical seminars on various topics pertinent to current artistic production in a broader cultural and social context.
  • The program's faculty includes outstanding professors from Buenos Aires and abroad.

All courses are held in Spanish. Enrolment: approximately 18 artists and six critics/curators. Applicants are selected by a faculty committee. There are no specific requirements or limitations in terms of area of background; the programme is open to participants from other areas of the arts interested in exploring contemporary art. Tuition is subsidized in the interest of making the programme accessible to a broad range of individuals.

The application deadline is 2 March 2015. Applications are available at: www.utdt.edu/posgrados-admision?id_item_menu=7079
