*Update: Fundraising unsuccessful. Will try again another time.Kickstarter Project LaunchedSend Michael to Argentina
I'm trying to raise $7,377 (airfare included) to travel to Buenos Aires, Argentina for an Artist Residency at Proyecto Ace. Proyecto Ace is a non-profit artist in residence program located in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I've been invited to do a SUB-30 Production Residency where I will make a site-specific, full-scale installation based on my Codex Migratus project.
The residency is from April 9 to April 26, 2012. During that time, I will be researching, visiting the city, and constructing my installation in the gallery space. I plan on letting my first-hand experience of crossing borders and interacting with a new country influence my project.
This is a fairly new residency program that doesn't have funding yet. So, it's up to the artist to come up with the funds to participate in this residency. If I don't meet my goal then no rewards are given out to you and no money is given for my residency. (If I don't raise $7,377 then no Argentina for Michael and no rewards from Michael!!)
New Kickstarter Project Launched:
Buenos Aires is the capital city of Argentina with a rich immigration legacy that ties it to countries from all over the world. This trip would be a tremendous resource for my project! Your support will help me write deeper into the mythology of the narrative for the Codex Migratus. New experiences mean more story for you to benefit from as the work moves towards global immigration matters!
Thank you for your interest in my project! Anything helps!!!
