Our mission is to generate constructive solutions that support contemporary Chilean artists. This is principally achieved through the AMA Grant, a prize that provides the possibility for a Chilean artist to participate in an artistic residency abroad.

As well as the prize, the AMA Foundation also owns a collection of contemporary Chilean art entitled Tectonic Shift, which is especially focused on works produced after the turn of the millennium.

The AMA Foundation also produces a series of monographic publications of acclaimed artists’ work, all centered around a specific theme.

Overall, our objective is to help with the growth of our local artistic scene through a strategy of promoting and supporting Chilean artists, thereby generating cultural transformations not just in our own region, but on a global level.
