Open call at Pivô, São Paulo

Open call at Pivô, São Paulo

Pivô is an independent non-profit contemporary art space, which is free and open to the public, located in São Paulo city centre. Founded in 2012, in a 3500m² space – previously closed for around 20 years – in the iconic Copan building designed by Oscar Niemeyer, Pivô works as a platform that facilitates artistic and curatorial experimentation, as well as being a meeting point for several players in the national and international art community and the public. Invited artists and curators are encouraged to go beyond their daily practice and to respond formally and conceptually to the specificities of Pivô’s architecture and context, proposing and carrying out projects that would be unlikely in different circumstances. Away from market pressures and excessively bureaucratic frameworks, Pivô is a place of experimentation that comes into fruition through exhibitions and commissioned artworks, workshops, art residencies and public programmes with artists at different stages in their careers and from different nationalities.

Pivo Research launches, for the first time, an international open-call for 4 fully-sponsored residencies in Sao Paulo. Artists living outside São Paulo, over 20 years old and working professionally for over 3 years are welcome to apply. 4 artists will be selected for a 3-months residency at Pivô, starting in March 2018

Proposals must be sent until February 1st 2018 (4pm- Brazilian time) to the email editais@pivo.org.br, subject: OPEN CALL PIVO RESEARCH. Here you can read the guidelines and application requirements.
