aarea.co is an online platform founded in 2017 by Livia Benedetti and Marcela Vieira to showcase artworks created specifically for the internet. Each edition presents a single project and the featured artists have all been challenged with creating a work whose only vehicle is the internet, most doing so for the first time. aarea’s activities extend beyond its website, in partnership with other institutions, curatorial projects and public programmes.
tropical papers met Livia Benedetti and Marcela Vieira through Pivõ arte e pesquisa in São Paulo, where they developed a special programme for the Pivõ’s residency program.
In 2020-2021, aarea.co curated “Futurs d’avant”, a programme for @jeudepaumeparis virtual space.
