SP-Arte seeks to foster Brazil’s art market both throughout its physical and online activities. By working together with galleries and cultural institutions, SP-Arte aims to:
- Contribute with the access to art and knowledge;
- Expand and strengthen the public’s education;
- Support the growth of the art-related business and galleries development;
- Promote artists and their production;
- Boost international exchanges and Brazil’s presence in the global arts scene.
Since 2005, SP-Arte – São Paulo’s International Art Festival – is a global arts event that brings together renowned art and design galleries, representing over 2,000 artists in the historical Oscar Niemeyer Bienal Pavilion. During the event, local museums and cultural institutions host a strong parallel program including panel discussions, exhibition openings, and special visits that offer an overview of São Paulo’s contemporary art circuit. SP-Arte plays an essential role in Latin America’s art market and strongly contributes with Brazil’s creative economy.
Created in 2007, SP-Foto – the São Paulo Photo Fair – is the one of the most renowned events dedicated to photography in Brazil. Annually held in August, the international month of photography, the Fair is a consolidated platform for cultural and artistic encounters between curators, collectors, artists, visitors, renowned galleries, publishing houses and museums. Over the course of five days at Shopping JK Iguatemi, modern and contemporary photography are the centre of debates, book releases and exhibitions that expanded throughout the city of São Paulo.
Launched in 2019, SP-Arte 365 is a supporting digital platform that aims to connect the Festival’s galleries to art collectors and buyers from all across the globe. Through this online model, our goal is to foster Brazil’s art market by contributing with and educating a new collectors base and ensuring business activities to our exhibitors not only throughout our events date but all year round.
