Foreigners or Brazilians living outside the state of Sao Paulo can participate in the visual artists selection process

Located at Edifício Lutetia (Lutetia building), in the central region of Sao Paulo, the Residência Artística FAAP (FAAP Artistic Residence - by Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado) will receive until February 15th application from visual artists who wish to research and develop projects in the city. Foreigners or Brazilians living outside the state of Sao Paulo can participate.

The Residência Artística FAAP aims to offer a privileged environment for experience exchanges in the field of visual arts. The place is prepared to receive up to 10 artists simultaneously, that can be hosted from September to December, 2014.

Designed based on the standards of international residencies, including the Cité des Arts* in Paris, the space is one of the most characteristic forms of support and encouragement to the development of the arts. (* Residence that receives artists from around the world, including FAAP, thanks to an agreement between the two institutions).

"It's like a platform for action and reflection on artistic practices, centered on the need to think production in a critical way and as a source of knowledge," says Professor Marcos Moraes, Coordinator of Residência Artística FAAP.

Information about all the necessary documentation for the selection process is available on site, by phone +55 (11) 3101-1776, by e-mail or by skype: residencia.artistica.faap.

Note: This year, due to the arrival of a large number of artists who will participate in the 31st Bienal de São Paulo, the beginning of the residence period was postponed from August to September.
