Projects may be of varied size and scope - from individuals seeking to pursue a joint art project to major institutions seeking potential partners for their programs and initiatives.
The Project Bureau facilitates the development of projects which:
Are in the Visual Arts:
The Project Bureau engages projects in the visual arts, broadly defined. While recognizing the complexities involved in defining that which constitutes “visual art”, the Project Bureau’s working definition includes: painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, installation, film, video, or performance that is intended to be presented as a work of art in a gallery or museum, through an online platform, or other public venue that presents art. The Project Bureau’s mandate extends beyond art works and exhibitions to research, and academic activities related to visual arts.
Will infuse Energy and Vitality into the Local Artworld:
The range of projects facilitated by the Project Bureau may encompass, beyond joint research, art production and exhibitions by artists, galleries, institutions, non-profits and also activities that strengthen the local art scene, including residencies, academic research programs, policy initiatives, conferences, seminars, publications, performances, and technological innovations. Any project or participant considered by the Project Bureau must have the potential to improve the ecology around art in Buenos Aires and Argentina at large.
Are Relevant and Professional:
Individuals and organizations must have a track record of operating in the artworld. The Expert Committee will seek projects and participants displaying a high level of execution and professionalism and may seek supporting documentation (such as published reviews, photographs, drawings, web links and other materials) to attest to the quality and impact of the proposed undertaking.
