Founded in 1988 aiming to promote the works of Brazilian artists, Almeida e Dale became in more than two decades one of the most remarkable galleries in Brazil. Throughout its history, the gallery has been responsible for inserting artists who are fundamental to the history of Brazilian art in important national and international collections and archives.
In last years, with Antônio Almeida and Carlos Dale as directors, the gallery has revisited the work of exponents of our art through retrospective exhibitions, designed by guest curators involved to researching the artist's body of work. Produced with museological accuracy, the exhibitions were followed by publications recognized for the novelty of academic essays and the rescue of historical texts. Recently has been assembled solo exhibitions with loans from collectors and institutions by Willys de Castro, Di Cavalcanti, Flávio de Carvalho, Mestre Didi, Alberto da Veiga Guignard, Alfredo Volpi, Jandira Waters, Roberto Burle Marx, stimulating renewed interest from critics in Brazil and abroad.
Together with the constant promotion of exhibitions and publications, Almeida and Dale support projects for the preservation and diffusion of Brazilian artists. In convergence with its role in the preservation of collections, since 2020 the gallery represents the estate of Luiz Sacilotto, a great artist of Brazilian concrete art.
