Entre tiempos: Second phase - Xadalu Tupã Jekupé

The artist-in-residence program Entre tiempos, developed by Collegium in collaboration with the Instituto Inclusartiz of Rio de Janeiro, begins its second period by welcoming Xadalu Tupã Jekupé as a new artist-in-residence.

Xadalu Tupã Jekupé (Alegrete, 1985) is an indigenous artist who tries to recover and maintain the traditions and knowledge of his community in Rio Grande do Sul. His work during the Entre tiempos residency will focus on the missions founded by the Society of Jesus in colonial America, focusing on southern Brazil. Approaching the genesis of the order (and of the old Jesuit complex of Arevalo), he will make a series of paintings about the missions that constitute one of the most remarkable utopias in history. The developed works will be part of a solo exhibition to be held at the National Museum of Fine Arts, in the city of Rio de Janeiro, in 2023.

Starting January 9, he will begin a research and creative stay in Arevalo that will last eight weeks. During this period, the Brazilian artist will be provided with accommodation, work space in the church of San Martín, contact with other cultural agents and a public presentation of the results of his work. In addition, a short film will be made about the residency, which will be presented at the end of the residency, along with that of the first resident of the program, Ayla Tavares.

The Entre tiempos artist residency program 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.
