ABOUT

DUPLEX | Artists in Residence it's an artist-run space, bringing together studios, a residency program and an independent art gallery, located in the center of Lisbon, in Graça neighborhood.

Seeking to stimulate creative processes, experimentation and artistic production, as well as the discourse that these dynamics originate, DUPLEX presents itself as a privileged territory for the coexistence of different artists,  different ways of creating and different ways of thinking about the work of art and its context.
Valuing advances and setbacks, valuing error, failure, and disruption as participants in contemporary practice, the entire structure and functioning of Duplex seeks, in addition to celebrating the final results, an approximation 
of the public to the conceptual and procedural richness of contemporary artistic creation.
For resident artists and curators, Duplex's program of artistic residencies allows a quick insertion in the artistic community of Lisbon, offering the possibility, the time and the space to develop and show their work. With conversations, visits, discussions and mentoring of projects developed in residence, DUPLEX seeks to adapt to the interests and needs of each group of residents, working through open calls, and also accepting self-proposals.

 

LOCATION
