La Ira de Dios / art space
We are in the process of building a space dedicated to contemporary art in the neighbourhood of Villa Crespo, Buenos Aires. La Ira de Dios is a non-profit initiative that aims to connect and promote local and international artists, create exchanges with similar spaces abroad, and incorporate a strong educational program.
Our project began as a gallery devoted to photography and new media for emerging artists. During these years, we organized a big number of exhibitions, seminars, lectures, and screenings. In 2013 we began to participate in international fairs and, thus, promote abroad the work of many relevant artists.
In June 2014, we rented a large warehouse a few blocks. In the place there are already settled in permanent studios, about ten local artists. We have organized two exhibitions with big format works and open studios. In turn, we are beginning a residency program for artists from the interior of the country and international artists. We have already received people from Kenya, Germany and the US. Also, we are carrying out seminars and workshops by renowned artists and teachers like Ariel Authier, Gabriel Valansi, Florencio Noceti, Mariano Giraud, among others.
The future project aims, among other things, to support artists in the production of experimental works and to establish scholarships to fund artists with particular potential.
We need funds to refurbish the space. Our goal is to begin in March 2015 with a renovated exhibition space and improve the workspaces for resident artists. For this we need to fix the walls and paint, rewire, add lighting, digital projectors and sound, among other things.
Several participating artists have donated works for this valuable initiative. They are unique pieces for this campaign to be delivered with a certificate signed by the artist.
