With love and friendship always at its core, Fundación Ama Amoedo seeks to create a lasting impact on the contemporary Latin American art ecosystem, expanding its visibility across the globe and fostering the careers of emerging artists

FAARA (Fundación Ama Amoedo Artistic Residence) is an initiative whose purpose is to provide a space for research, work, and creative reflection, offering a retreat in nature in José Ignacio, Uruguay.


The Foundation was established to formalize and realize the projects of Amalia Amodeo, who has been collecting and supporting artists for more than two decades. Its objective is to actively collaborate with spaces and research that focus on social inclusion and educational projects. In addition, it will try to stimulate the artistic production of the younger generations, developing programs for their personal and creative development.
