Enrollment for Escola São Paulo now open
At this innovative school, learning and research go hand in hand with actual production of contemporary culture and related reflection.
Escola São Paulo was founded to further education through art and culture. Key activities include a wide range of courses, lectures and workshops with free access to out film library, exhibitions and other cultural activities.
Students connect with the best professionals in the market, as they interact, share, contact, feel and learn through practical activities in a new way. The school acts as a space that encourages cultural creation and experimentation from a contemporary perspective, so students learn to move between different fields and disciplines, fleshing out their knowledge through dynamic courses and workshops as well as creating movies (shorts), literary texts, photo essays, cuisine tasting sessions, fashion previews and collections, reviews, graphic and visual-art projects and illustrations.
Rather than formally academic concepts, our educational systematic features curriculum and courses designed by professors and coordinators who are specialists in their field, in many cases outstanding professionals who have been active in the market for several years.
Below you will find more on our One-Year Contemporary Art program.
ONE-YEAR CONTEMPORARY ART PROGRAM – VISUAL ARTS AND CURATORIAL DESIGN
The program provides training for artists and curators aiming to develop new projects and languages. At its core are weekly seminars at which one of the participants presents their work for critical review and discussions in breakout groups. Other activities include both lectures and individual meetings with professors who are active in the contemporary art world in Brazil and internationally.
The program is directed by Adriano Pedrosa (curator for the Istanbul Biennial) and professors include one of the curators at Tate Modern – Julieta Gonzalez, Beatriz Milhazes (painter), Leda Catunda (painter), Ernesto Neto (sculptor), Ivo Mesquita (curator of the Octagon project at Pinacoteca do Estado gallery), Marcos Morales (diretor and professor of FAAP art school and professor at Santa Marcelina), Rivane Neunschwander (artist), Rodrigo Moura (curator, Inhotim) and Rosangela Rennó (artist).
The aim is to broaden students' horizons in terms of their critical and artistic range, offering a series of different points of view and the conceptual tools to assess their work and its development, as well as an opportunity to see and interact with more mature work and research.
