18 Nov 2021, 5 pm

SP–Arte launches, in partnership with MJournal, the series “Open studios”, dedicated to contemporary art. On the occasion of the 17th SP–Arte, we visited the workspaces of artists whose works were at the Fair to get to know their daily artistic practices from up close.

Featured on the series are artists Thiago Martins de Melo, Thomaz Rosa, Moisés Patrício and Luana Vitra.

MJournal is one of the most prominent Latin American cultural publications, with an eye for art, imagery, fashion, society and culture.
