Adelina Residencies

Adelina Residencies for Latin American Artists


São Paulo, Brazil

During the second half of this year the Instituto Adelina will receive the four artists, two of them from Brazil, participating in their artistic residencies in São Paulo. Until June 10, the institute will be accepting portfolios by artists, born or residing in Latin America, interested in completing its art residency. The Adelina Residencies for Latin America will be divided in two cycles occurring in the second semester of this year. Each cycle will receive two artists, one of whom will be from Brazil.

The selection of artists will be entrusted to a jury formed by Josué Mattos, artistic director of the Instituto Adelina—who will also be in charge of curating the residencies—along with the following six curators and artists with experience and active in the Latin American art circuit: Camila Bechelany, Galciani Neves, Julia Lima, Vitor Cesar, and Renata Cruz.

According to the owner of the gallery, Fabio Luchetti, "The idea of the Adelina Residency is to bring together artists working in different disciplines and fields of contemporary art who offer proposals that are in tune with the Adelina Galería's goal of establishing an artistic dialogue with Latin America. Additionally, we are very interested in the exchange of experiences associated with the art world that we are part of. We began the process of residencies in 2017 and this was the first edition with this model of the call. Some of the artists that have already participated in the residencies come from Germany, Argentina, the Canary Islands, and several Brazilian cities."
