Opening: 6 October 2017, 17 hs.
Institute: Nueva Escuela de Diseño y Comunicación, Callao 57, Buenos Aires.
Josie Watson visits the high institute where she first learned to fuse traditional and digital art. In the New School, technical careers are taught at an initial level with a special focus on manual techniques together with specialized new technologies for each of them. The artist found here the first space where she could get to know the software and systems with which she would later work on a daily basis.
Josie Watson maintains a fraternal relationship with the New School, accompanying it in multiple activities, giving open classes and tuttoring students in their creative searches.
In 2018 the artist donated to the New School an App with which the murals in the corridors of the old building made by the former students could be seen animated. The walls would come alive! The App was one of the activities that the institution was able to present in its first participation in the 2018 Buenos Aires Museum Night. This type of works done by the alumni promotes the collaboration spirit of an institution that accompanies artists from different creative disciplines on their way to professionalizing their passion and mastering their own careers.
