About

atelies_001Eight studios are permanently occupied by artists who live and work in Rio de Janeiro (check the link “artists” in this section). In the same building, four studios are reserved for artists participating in Despina Residency Programme.

This arrangement meets our goal to create a workspace that encourages the exchange and dialogue, not only between artists but also with other agents. The studios are open to the public during exhibition openings and events, and artists have plenty of autonomy to organize their spaces individually, propose workshops and exhibition projects.
