AZAN contemporary art is an artist-run project that includes studios, residencies and a program of events such as open days, exhibitions, talks and performances. Situated in Marvila, the south-east of Lisbon, the program is currently based at Tomaz HipĆ³lito Studio, a place where the exhibition meets the working artist, with experimentation, research and reflection artistic practices.

The main focus of AZAN is to build a network and location for creating an independent program, including the resident artists, national and international artists.
