Atelier SantoIsidro is an independent project born in November 2017.
Since the beginning it was decided to create a workspace in which to develop individual artistic projects and collaborations with the exchange of ideas, discussions and conversations. The artists access to the space through open call and remain at least two months, depending on the duration of the projects developed.
The urban context where the studio is located, in the area close to Praça Marques in Porto, can be defined by urban penumbra, located at the edge of the city center.
It is a dynamic and flexible space that works as an exhibition space in addition to being a studio.
The program includes two types of events: “open studio”, during which the resident artists present the work in progress, and the “Hotel SantoIsidro”, a program developed by the resident artists of the atelier, with the purpose of inviting artists from different contexts for residences (from two weeks to one month) to create and exhibit in the space, usually in a temporary format of one to two days of exhibition.
The intention is to exchange ideas and cultures with the artists hosted and to offer the opportunity to participate in the artistic panorama in the city of Porto.
