Galleries

SP-Arte approached 2019 as Brazil’s main platform for arts dissemination and commerce. In order to celebrate our fifteen years in the market, we gather the most renowned exhibitors from Brazil and all over the world at the Bienal Pavilion during five days. The art galleries was divided in three sectors: Main, Solo, Masters, Performance and OpenSpace.

This sector’s main purpose is to create a historical exhibition and to present relevant names for the development of the Brazilian art scenario. In 2019, curator Tiago Mesquita focused on 20th Century artists, who produced in the post-war period (1950–1980).

Curated by Marcos Gallon, the acts of this 15th edition took turns at different times leaving traces in the Bienal Pavilion. One of these works was purchased by SP-Arte and donated to Pinacoteca de São Paulo, supporting the insertion of perfomance in the commercial and institutional realms of art.
