Founded 2003
São Paulo, Brazil


Ateliê397 is a space for cultural intervention in the arts circuit, which promotes actions, projects and experiences that encourage the formation of other perspectives for contemporary artistic production. Recognized as one of the longest and most relevant independent venues in the city and country, it was founded in 2003 as a mix of events and exhibit space, and were based in Vila Madalena until 2016. Over the years, it has received and proposed debates, lectures, intense audiovisual programming, as well as courses and residency programs. In 2017, Ateliê397 migrated to the shed in Vila Pompéia and continues to undergo reformulations in its management mode, keeping alive the constant demand to rethink the functioning of the institutions and the art circuit in the country. Today, it is managed collectively, with a volunteer team that prepares and carries out the various space projects.
