Program Description:

The Artistic Lodging hosted by Tomaz Hipólito Studio is located in a rebuilt warehouse occupied by the artist Tomaz Hipólito and by an architecture studio, in a growing area with many contemporary art galleries and artist’s studios.

The Artistic Lodging aims to welcome artists and introduce them to the Lisbon art scene with the feeling of a shared studio where artists can collaborate, share ideas and develop their work and research. The dialogue and the experimentation are encouraged and projects related to the studio and its surroundings are welcome.

In a very natural way, as it often happens in artist’s studios, we can provide information about openings, art events, suppliers and maximize the exposure of each artist in the city.
