Short history/project description (few lines) : The Heart Residency objective is to generate and make possible a personalized, free and independent artistic exchange.
It offers a complete management service and accommodation to artists from other countries who would like to come to La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina. The trip would allow mutual enrichment, a professional and emotive approach towards new experiences and aesthetic realities.
Residencia Corazón also offers all that would be necessary to circulate each artist’s work and to put on exhibitions in both La Plata and Buenos Aires.
The visiting artists will enjoy a dynamic and vibrantperiod of work where they have at their disposal a studio to complete their project whilst being introduced to new contacts with and within the local artistic community, institutions, cultural and general public.
Residencia Corazón has a living space and workshop in the center of La Plata only 30 minutes from Buenos Aires.
The conditions, duration and price of the residencies will be arranged on a personal basis to suit each artist according to their individual needs. Residencia Corazón has the institutional support of the Local Council of La Plata and from the Nation University of La Plata (UNLP) and also from various private companies in the city.
