It is a pride for us, the people of Chaco, to have built an international event of full recognition in the world sculptural scene. Great sculptors of the world on stage and in action, working in open air and in public, sculpting pieces that are destined for Resistencia paths. And so the virtuous circle closes: the work of art becomes part of the everyday landscape making art a good of all.

The Sculpture Contest

Never Ending Providers of an Increasing Heritage

Never Ending Providers of an Increasing Heritage

From the First Wood Sculpture Contest in the Resistencia Main Square, in 1998, to the International Biennials at the present time, the Government of the Province of Chaco and the Urunday Foundation jointly work to make out of every Biennial a true celebration of identity of the people of Chaco.

 

These contests get together prestigious artists from all over the world, outdoors and in front of thousands of spectators, creating an original and unique work of art.

These works are made of different non-perishable materials, which are later integrated to public places, such as sidewalks, boulevards and parks of the city, uplifting an unprecedented cultural heritage, changing Resistencia into a modern and unique outdoors museum.

 

The sculpture contests quickly became into an unexpected large popular festival. Thousands of visitors arrive from the most diverse points of the country and the world to turn the site, where the

Biennial takes place, into a cultural and social event that brings together artists and people in a same place for multicultural interchange.

 

The importance reached by the Biennials has inserted Resistencia into the Sculpture Art World and positioned it as an international reference of arts and culture.

Resistencia,

the City of Sculptures

Suddenly, in a common place, you meet art, you touch it, you feel it,
you live it and you are amazed… and so, some 600 more times.

America is a continent of great sculptors, and a scene of a cultural identity, which locates art in natural places, along with daily life in the city. Argentina, even though its different accents, is not an exception. There we find Chaco, a paradigmatic example of this new conception. And in this land, we find Resistencia, its capital city, showing its peculiar spirit to express the language of arts.

 

Resistencia, The City of Sculptures, is the capital of the Province of Chaco, located in the north of the Argentine Republic. Its outdoors areas offer the generosity of abundant vegetation, and its art, available to all.

 

As a magic scenario, more than 630 sculptures are shown to the spirit, whose prestigious authors were once brought together to build up this unprecedented Cultural Heritage, which turns the city into a modern and peerless outdoors museum.

 

Resistencia, the city of the sculptures, is a phenomenon. Not only because the sculptures on its streets, parks or boulevards, but also for its sculptures with and for its people, as a visual continuation of the urban landscape and a creative impression which encourages sensitivity and stimulates imagination.

World Cultural Heritage

Since 1998, UNESCO follows these activities and the process to declare Resistencia “World Cultural Heritage” has begun.

National Capital of the Sculptures

The City of Resistencia was declared National Capital of the Sculptures by the Congress of the Nation, October 2006 – Law 26.157.

Mercosur Capital City of Sculptures

In October 2010, the Mercosur Parliament, declared “Resistencia: Mercosur Capital City of Sculptures” .
