Founded in 2003 in São Paulo, Brasil
Directors: Marcelo Amorim & Thais Rivitti

The Ateliê397 is a place dedicated to circulation, production and exhibition of contemporary art in Brazil. Located in Vila Madalena – a neighborhood well known for its intense cultural life in São Paulo – the Ateliê397 opened doors in 2003 and has gone through some changes to its organizational form since then. Currently, its main activities are editing and publishing books on artists, holding art exhibitions and interdisciplinary events, including video art sessions, performance shows, happenings, and concerts.

The Ateliê397ʼs actions are not solely based on market interests – it has a more dynamic and daring approach than that of major museum institutions. Its overriding purpose is to create an experimental agenda in line with the production of artists, critics and curators with innovative proposals.

It is coordinated by Marcelo Amorim and Thais Rivitti and plays an important role in encouraging discussions, creating opportunities for exhibition and reflection on the current art production.

So far, the Ateliê397 has already held 40 exhibitions, 10 video art shows and published 4 books, among numerous other occasional events, which occur on a regular basis and attract an audience mostly made up of professionals from the cultural area and university students.
