HOA is an artist-led arts organization that sprouted in the artistic hub of São Paulo, Brazil, in 2020. The visionary mind behind this movement is none other than Igi Lola Ayedun, a trailblazer with an unwavering dedication to contemporary Latin American art.

Committed to a decolonial perspective of contemporary art, with a focus on artists from the global majority, HOA has established a network of over 40 artists from across the country who are shaping a fresh vision of decolonial culture within the local context. Covering a wide range of mediums, from painting to 3D art, HOA's curatorial core offers a rich diversity of artistic expressions, fostering a multimedia connection with the next generation of artists, thinkers, and curators.
