Bruno del Giudice (ARG)

Residency: May - June 2023

Bruno del Giudice (*1987) is an artist and graphic designer from Chaco, Argentine. Currently, he is based in Madrid, Spain. He studied at the Universidad Nacional del Nordeste in Argentine and attended several workshops focusing on photography, art direction, and audiovisual direction and was a part of an art workshop “Estonoesunacademia” under the guidance of Diego Figueroa.

His artistic work is influenced by the environment he comes from, which is the Argentine Chaco, a province near Brazil bordering Paraguay. It is a region known for its cultural hybridization. He focuses on features specific to the territory, such as language or food. In his artistic practice, he deals with questions of original and copy, assemblage, wandering, popular imagination, reuse of materials or barter. These are common phenomena of traditional market culture, which is closely linked to the environment of Latin America, specifically the Chaco region.

Since 2020 he co-directs lacalor, a graphic art production studio and independent exhibition space in the city of Madrid. He has participated as a guest artist with lacalor in the Crater Program of the Sala de Arte Joven de Madrid and other independent self-managed projects such as Aragon Park II (Coslada, Madrid) and has been awarded a grant by the community of Madrid and the city council of Madrid. In addition, he is a member of the artist program at the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella and is part of the artist residency at the workshops of Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de la Boca. Since 2019, he is part of the Artists X Artists program of the Fundación el Mirador. He has exhibited his work at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de la Boca (Buenos Aires), Centro Cultural de la Memoria Haroldo Conti (Buenos Aires), Museo Caraffa (Córdoba, Argentina) and EAC Bienal Sur (Uruguay), among others.

This residency is supported by the Creative Europe programme. The residency program is supported using public funding by Slovak Arts Council.

The residency is organized in collaboration with Meet Factory in the Czech Republic, hablarenarte: in Spain and Visual Culture Research Center, in Ukraine.
