Now in its twelfth year, Arquetopia Foundation is a multiple award-winning nonprofit arts and cultural foundation with a social scope that is internationally established on three continents. Our mission emphasizes critical thinking, a commitment to reciprocity, and a sense of ethics at the core of all artistic practices. Our customized, professional International Artist-in-Residence Programs are among the largest and most reputable worldwide. All of our multinational artist residency programs are unique, with an array of content anchored in local knowledge, critical academic perspectives, and a solid structure of collaborations with prominent cultural institutions, renowned experts, and notable artists. Our residency sites are located in four distinct cultural regions selected for their historical importance, influence and artistic contribution to the world: Puebla and Oaxaca in Mexico, Cusco in Peru, and Naples in southern Italy.

Considering how dominant visual culture has contributed to the invention of Mexico, Peru, and Italy in popular imagination, at Arquetopia, we are constantly exploring local epistemologies and cultures of resistance as a source of knowledge to contribute to social change. We are invested in approaching creative practices with critical perspectives to challenge all preconceived notions of “history” and “place,” and through the use of dynamic language, we question the idea of the body as a fixed identity. Through the years, we have successfully created a generous space where different perspectives meet and address important questions on the legacy of art history and the current state of the world. We are proud to have established through our multiple residency programs a generous and culturally diverse space by hosting every year artists, scholars, and researchers from the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. Our experience has been enriched by the multiplicity of perspectives of more than 750 of our resident artists and writers who have come from all regions of the world and more than 95 countries. Our residency programs offer competitive professional opportunities for emerging and mid-career, national and international artists, designers, curators, art historians, art educators, writers, journalists, and cultural researchers age 20 and over.

Arquetopia is distinguished worldwide for its array of unique residency programs with substantial content. Our residency spaces function exclusively for productive art professionals, writers, and researchers and include structured, informative programs; a network of collaborative workspaces, institutions, and studios; and personalized project support.
