Founded in 2009 in Puebla, Arquetopia is an award-winning, Mexican official nonprofit foundation run entirely by artists. It has since grown to include the premier artist residency program in Mexico with extensive collaborative networks in Puebla and Oaxaca. Our resident artists have come from dozens of countries on six continents. We are proud that many of our artists have returned for residencies with us even two and three more times. Arquetopia’s Artist-in-Residence Programs offer important professional opportunities for emerging and mid-career, national and international contemporary artists, designers, curators, and art educators age 25 and over.
