In keeping with the spirit of experimentation that made the Instituto Torcuato Di Tella mythical as one of the most advanced interdisciplinary creative centers of the sixties, the Programa de Artistas of the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella in Buenos Aires is a one-year program that provides visual artists, critics, and curators with an intensive experience in which to reflect on and produce contemporary art.

The seventh edition of the program has three fundamental features:

a group of approximately eighteen artists and six curators/critics. The aim of this coexistence is to provide a unique opportunity for exchange whereby the practices and positions pivotal to the arts are explored critically in the framework of an intense and shared experience of discussion and collaboration.

– The program includes a central seminar geared to reflection on the work of each participant, workshops for experimentation in different methodologies, and a series of theoretical seminars on various topics pertinent to current artistic production in a broader cultural and social context.

– The program’s faculty includes outstanding professors from Buenos Aires and abroad. In 2015, the faculty will consist of Diego Bianchi, Inés Katzenstein, Mónica Giron, Rafael Cippolini, Lara Marmor, Vivi Tellas, Luis Garay and Osias Yanov, Lars Bang Larsen, Juan Gaitán, Karina Peisajovich, Paola Cortes-Rocca, Diego Sztulwark, Christian Ferrer and Margarita Martínez, Eduardo Navarro, Mariela Scafati and Graciela Speranza.

Recent visiting professors include Martí Manen, Raimundas Malasauskas, Jason Dodge, Carlos Amorales, Renata Lucas, Paulo Herkenhoff, Santiago Sierra, Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy, Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento, Bruce Altshuler, Chus Martínez, and Cuauhtémoc Medina.
