The Inclusartiz Institute’s Residency Programs aim to promote cultural exchange between Brazil and other countries to encourage collaboration between institutions, organizations and different cultural agents.
The Inclusartiz Institute currently offers artistic residencies in Rio de Janeiro and London, in partnership with the Delfina Foundation.
During the artistic residencies that take place in Rio de Janeiro, the Inclusartiz Institute welcomes international artists, curators or academics who wish to research different aspects of the country, participate in projects with the local artistic community and develop works and collaborations in Brazil. As of 2020, artistic residencies in Rio de Janeiro also started to receive artists from outside the Rio – São Paulo axis who wish to deepen their research, establish collaborations and produce new works.
The Instituto Inclusartiz International Residency Program welcomes international artists, curators or academics who wish to research different aspects of the country, participate in projects with the local artistic community and develop works and collaborations in Brazil.
Artists in residence spend up to 4 weeks in Rio de Janeiro with personalized curatorial support and research assistance. International residencies are mainly focused on research, project development and are designed according to the interests and needs of each resident.
As part of its International Residency Program, Instituto Inclusartiz organizes a series of different educational activities such as workshops, lectures and critical sessions for art students from local schools and universities in Rio de Janeiro and, with this, increases the cultural exchange between resident artists and the local arts community.
Since its founding, Instituto Inclusartiz’s International Residency Program has hosted more than thirty artists and curators, including Leslie Sardinias (Cuba), Martin Creed (UK), Guler Ates (Turkey), Oscar Murillo (Colombia), Dalila Gonçalves (Portugal), Cristina de Middel (Spain), Jennifer Pattison (UK), Anna Franceschini (Italy), João Laia (Portugal), Christopher Page (UK), Chris Sharp (USA), Prem Sahib (UK), Milovan Farronato (Italy), Joanna Piotrowska (Poland), Germano Dusha (Brazil), Hans Ulrich Obrist (Switzerland), Amanda Abi Khalil (Lebanon), Ahmad Ghossein (Lebanon), Matias Duville (Argentina), Pablo León de la Barra ( Mexico), Rodrigo Hernández (Mexico), Maria do Carmo MP de Pontes (Brazil), Valeska Soares (Brazil), Gerda Steiner and Jorg Lenzlinger (Switzerland), Yuko Hasegawa (Japan), Eduardo Navarro (Argentina), Diana Campbell Betancourt ( USA), Lisa Le Feuvre (United Kingdom), Charlotte Prodger (United Kingdom), Ana Lira (Brazil), Matthew Lutz -Kinoy (United Kingdom), Maxwell Alexandre (Brazil), Manauara Clandestina (Brazil) and Xadalu Tupã Jekupé (Brazil).
The Instituto Inclusartiz in partnership with the Delfina Foundation annually offers a 3-month residency in London for a Brazilian artist with the main objective of contributing to a permanent presence of Brazilian artists on a global platform, as well as positioning local artistic practices in different contexts and perspectives.
Founded in 2007, the Delfina Foundation is a London-based non-profit organization dedicated to facilitating artistic exchange and developing creative practice through residencies, exhibitions and public programming. The foundation provides a platform for its residents to reflect on their practices, position their work in relevant global discourses, develop artistic research and network.
Forging international collaborations between artists, curators, communities and institutions is possible thanks to the Delfina Foundation’s extensive local and international network. Resident artists receive individual assistance and curatorial guidance, participate in group discussions with other residents and visit workshops with independent and institutional curators.
In 2018, the application process for residencies was only for artists based in Rio de Janeiro nominated by local and international curators. In 2019, the application process for residencies focused on artists from the Northeast region of Brazil, also nominated by local and international curators. In 2020, we propose an open call for artists from the Northern Region of Brazil. The selected artist was Manauara Clandestina. In 2021, the notice is directed to the Center-West Region of Brazil.
Former residents include Manauara Clandestina, Ana Lira, Maxwell Alexandre and Vivian Caccuri.
