IDA Foundation produces exhibition experiences, provides expert counsel, and loans material for curatorial projects.
The development of exhibitions in museums and cultural centers, both in Argentina and abroad, enables constant review of the collection from different perspectives. Besides organizing, whether partially or in its entirety, the exhibitions, the Foundation provides primary sources, bibliography, study material, and original pieces for cultural diffusion and valorization activities in interprovincial, national, and international displays. The showcased topics can refer specifically to design but they can also address the field as a complementary element within a complex context where different disciplines dialogue.
Some of the services provided by IDA are:
Integrated design: space planning, transportation experience, complementary content (print, digital, and educational additional material).
Installation and staging: spatial solutions, thematic infrastructure, creation of core topics, use of devices.
Curatorship: conceptual and thematic proposals aimed at creating exhibitions that showcase innovative and deeper approaches to emblematic topics.
Tours: development of exhibits planned to be transported, installed, and activated in special exhibition rooms and environments.
Cultural asset loans: available for temporary exhibits in the country or abroad. The Foundation's expeditious mechanism facilitates legal requirements (publication, exhibition, and author rights), as well as safety concerns (insurance, reports regarding the state of the assets, handling and installation handbooks). This service includes a document backup that enhances the reading and interpretation of each piece. Loans must be requested through the online format.
Image bank: archive consult or acquisition of images for exhibition should be petitioned through the online format..
