Alê Espaço de Arte, located in São Paulo, promotes an artist residency program that offers space and resources for artists to develop their projects in an inspiring and vibrant environment, providing the opportunity of total immersion in creative processes and local culture. In addition, there is the possibility of sharing and interacting with other artists, curators, and other art-spaces, promoting an enriching and collaborative dialogue.

Our art-space, with over ten years of existence, is in the neighborhood called Brooklin. Has easy access to subway and buses to all locations in São Paulo and is full of houses, buildings, stores, markets, and a large store specializing in art articles, just two blocks away. An interesting historical fact of this very vibrant neighborhood is that, at the end of the 19th century, a train line where the wagons were pulled by animals passed through here and connected the center of São Paulo to the then municipality of Santo Amaro. A perfect neighborhood in the city of São Paulo to investigate and be seduced.

If the artist comes from another country or another city or State in Brazil, there is the possibility of staying in an apartment located in front of the gallery, where they can easily walk to their studio or even access public transportation a few minutes’ walk to explore the city of São Paulo.

The artist-in-residence receives a studio and the support of our team that will accompany the project, indicate places to find research material, contact other artists, ateliers, galleries and indicate cultural events.

At the end of the residency, Alê Espaço de Arte offers its exhibition space for a period of one week to be occupied with the presentation of the project developed during the residency.

The residency period may be 30, 60 or 90 days and the result of artistic research during this period will be displayed in our gallery space. All works produced during the residency are the property of the artist.
