In each biennium, BoCA has four Resident Artists. They are artists who work in different artistic territories or at least in very different media, and with whom we want to have a long lasting relationship.
With the Resident Artists, BoCA establishes a deep relationship, thinking together, knowing in more detail their creative motivations, helping to produce new creations in Portugal, promoting the national and international circulation of their works and facilitating the contact between the their artistic practices and the academic contexts.
