Founded in 2012, Pivô is a non-profit cultural organization that operates as a platform for exchange programs and artistic experimentation.

Edifício Copan, Avenida Ipiranga, 200, Republica

Pivô is a non-profit cultural organization and an independent space for art and research, which try to spread artists’ ideas and proposals.

It tries to enhance the peculiarities of each project, by setting up and producing exhibitions, specific projects and interventions

Located in the culturally dynamic downtown district of São Paulo, the centre proposes itself as an exchange space, where a constant dialogue between creators, theorists, students and the public on a national and international level is made possible.

It tries as well to promote new models of management and funding for artists, critics and cultural producers.
