Arevalo, September 19, 2022. - Collegium and Instituto Inclusartiz from Rio de Janeiro have established a partnership to launch, starting next September 26, the residency program for artists Entre tiempos. This is an initiative to promote the circulation of artists in the city of Arévalo and its surroundings, encouraging artistic research on topics related to the history, culture, and traditions of the region. These residencies seek to contribute to social cohesion by generating spaces of knowledge and trust in the local context, strengthening the feeling of belonging to the territory in the long term.
Entre tiempos will host two artists in 2022-23, who will be offered accommodation, workspace, and networking, among other types of support, for eight weeks. Each residency will finish with a public presentation of the work developed and a short film showing the research and creation process of each artist in context. The selected artists for this edition are Brazilians Ayla Tavares and Xadalu Tupã Jekupé, who will reside in Arévalo respectively from September to December and from January to March.

Ayla Tavares (Rio de Janeiro, 1990) investigates archaeological and sacred artifacts, architecture, and everyday objects, establishing relationships with different layers of time to think about everyday life, memory, and life in common. Understanding materiality with all its complexities, Tavares creates constellations of objects under different orders, generating from these new bodies relationships of estrangement, speculation, and fabulation. She holds a master's degree in Visual Arts from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), specializing in ceramic production and archeology.

Xadalu Tupã Jekupé (Alegrete, 1985) is an indigenous artist who uses silk screen printing, painting, photography, and objects to address urban art and the tension between indigenous and western culture in the cities. His work, as well as his conversations with wise men around the bonfire, have become one of the most powerful resources of the visual arts against the erasure of indigenous culture in Rio Grande do Sul. Dialogue and integration with the Guarani Mbyá community allowed the artist to rescue and recognize his own ancestry.
