We are a self-managed collective created in order to create spaces for exchange and dialogue between artists, curators, managers and researchers from local and other provinces and countries.  

 

We perceive ourselves as a multidisciplinary team that works together to provide support to each of the artists who visit us or who contact us virtually. Our work is mainly focused on generating contention so that they can carry out their projects and at the same time link with the artistic context of the city.

Politologist and cultural manager. Co-founder of R.A.R.O. and director of the program’s Buenos Aires branch. I studied Political Science and Intentional Relations at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana of Bogotá. Later I traveled to Buenos Aires where I started a Master in Communication and cultural creation at the Walter Benjamin Foundation. Since 2014 I have been leading R.A.R.O. Buenos Aires, my work focuses on generating links with institutions and artists, applying to scholarship programs, raising funds and on the general management of the projects that make up the residence. Simultaneously I have worked in different art spaces, artistic collectives, residency programs and artistic studio spaces in the management and production of exhibitions, talks and programs for artists. Proyecto Ace, BSM Art Building, Espacio Munar, among others. Currently I work as an independent cultural manager. I am interested in generating alternative forms of organization that are related to self-management and the collectivization of artistic practices.

Silvina Amighini

1979. Buenos Aires, Argentina

 

Degree in Art Curatorship from Universidad Nacional de las Artes. Since 2016 I have been part of the international artistic residency program R.A.R.O. Buenos Aires, where I work as director of the Curatorship Department and as trilingual educator at the Museum of Modern Art of Buenos Aires since June 2018. Of all the definitions that the role of the curator has, I identify with the one that maintains that curators are intermediaries between art and spectators. A kind of bridge that not only joins, but also has the important task of bringing people closer. I am a supporter of the idea that art is for everyone and an advocate of its democratization, which is why I am passionate about being able to share my experience, listen to yours and so, together, add knowledge.
