Galeria Murilo Castro is a contemporary art gallery in Belo Horizonte and Miami championing new ideas since 2002. Through exhibitions and artist representation, the gallery spotlights established, midcareer and emerging artists who are active locally and internationally. Influential in cultural and political spheres, these artists are recognized for creating work that is multimedia, inter-disciplinary and crosses geographic borders.
The gallery considers artistic practice as a form of research and knowledge production. In addition to the exhibitions program, participating in national and international art fairs, Murilo Castro hosts a series of talks that connect the community, art professionals and artists to generate responses to social and cultural issues, developing a closer relationship between the artists and an engaged audience interested in learning about and collecting contemporary art.
Today, the gallery is housed in a 600m2 space whose architecture reflects the open spirit of Brazil’s modernism and the gallery’s desire to present new ideas and experiences while contributing to the dissemination and appreciation of contemporary art. And in Miami in a space of 120m² aiming to present exhibitions that are significant within an international and vibrant context as well as the city of Miami.
