The residence of the week
Intemperie - Necochea y Quequén, Argentina
Intemperie is a nomadic platform created in 2017 on the Atlantic coast of Argentina that aims to professionalize the cultural scene of Necochea y Quequén. In order to do so, artists from the region are invited to realize site-specific projects in abandoned areas or in the natural environment surrounding the region. « We try to create meetings and projects that have to do with the circulation of production, the circulation of knowledge and experiences, to generate projects and proposals that have to do with receiving artists from other places, artists, managers, researchers » indicates Alejandra Veglio, coordinator of Intemperie.
In 2018, the project opens its annual two weeks residency program, Residencia de Playa, seeking to bring artists from farther regions of the country and from other parts of the world. Thought as a nomadic project, the location will change every year but artists in residence will always find themselves in harmony with the Atlantic ocean. « We take care of finding a space that has a strong contact with nature, that is a refuge from inclemencies, in a way of speaking, so you have everything to be able to focus, disconnect and be able to let the environment go through your personal researches and be reflected in your work » explains Deborah Wall, coordinator of the residency.
