ABOUT US

We are a community of people connected to the arts – artists, curators, critics, collectors, etc. – from all over the world, with diverse experiences and points of view engaged in critical exchanges.

“Don’t worry about the cool. Be uncool and do!”

Paraphrasing Sol Lewitt to Eva Hesse.

MISSION

To maintain and strengthen our community so that it is increasingly full of exciting opportunities in art and so that exceptionally creative people from different parts of the world feel truly welcomed and can produce and share artistic knowledge in a whole and sustainable way.

VISION

To be the most exciting and solid option for community-based learning and independent engagement with the international contemporary art world.

VALUES

Uncool Artist promotes circulation opportunities, bonds that expand beyond the platform, and collective support in the management and execution of significant projects while empowering unique individuals.

We aim to produce critical and creative knowledge that seeks to empower subjectivities, create new communities, and transform social structures to be more inclusive, embracing human diversity. Uncool Artist is a result of 20 years of experience in distance education in Brazil that has been applied to contemporary art teaching since 2010.
