Art is a dynamic social force that inspires individuals and defines cultures.

Ateliê Alê opened in 2012 and has become a space of democratization and discussion on contemporary art production, fostering access to this subject by producing its own exhibitions, workshops, art classes and  talks relating to what is most current in art today. We promote activities that have a wide range of interests within the arts, including philosophy, literature and cinema. 

It all started with..... The project LAB570 was conceived as an artistic laboratory for curators to develop projects based on current art production in São Paulo, Brazil. In addition, the project creates, for emerging artists, a scene behind mainstream exhibitions where new research and artistic innovation can be cultivated.


Project LAB570 gives opportunity for artists and curators to experiment in the exhibition space. The intention it is to be a laboratory to try out  new projects, installations or a new media to be experimented. The proposals are carefully studied by our team and interviews and meetings must take place in order to provide an exhibition that complies with the mission and concept of the art-space as a whole. 

Projeto Portão (Gate Project). For this project graffiti artists are invited to make an intervention on the studio’s door. They also present their work in the first gallery of the studio. The objective of  Gate Project is to provide a working space and visibility for graffiti artists as well as  incite a discussion of the relationship between street art and institutionalized art.

Estudo Aberto (Open Study) is our art in residency program. The artist is provided with working space (tables, storage area and wooden board on the wall) for up to three months, and an opportunity to exhibit his/her research at the end of the residence period. The Ateliê asks for a monthly contribution for basic expenses. If a living space is needed our team will do their best to assist the artist in his/her housing search.
