Jac Leirner

“Middle East”, 2016 (Fortes, D’Aloia e Gabriel)

“Jac Leirner is an artist with a great path and an internationally acclaimed career. Recently, she won the German prize Wolfgang Hahn, granted by the Museum Ludwig, in Cologne, becoming the first Brazilian artist to be awarded”.

Rubem Valentim

“Emblema 72”, 1972 (Ronie Mesquita Galeria)

“One of the most important concrete Brazilian artists, his works have gained growing attention from the public, despite late. For his canvases, Valentim was inspired by Bahia cultural roots and his African ancestors, and was a self-taught painter”.

Antoni Tàpies

Untitled, 1970 (Bergamin & Gomide) 

“Deceased in 2012, the Catalan artist holds an oeuvre of great importance, taking part in a generation whose production took place amongst the vanguards of the second half of the 20th century. He is an artist of historical relevance, who recently held his first solo show at a Brazilian gallery”.

Anna Bella Geiger

“Burocracia”, 76-85 (Murilo Castro Galeria)

“Of the many facets from Anna Bella Geiger’s body of work, painting is one of the most interesting. Mainly those produced between the 1970s and 1980s, which carry much of her work’s political discourse, in a general sense, intertwined with questions around image and, in some cases, a more aesthetic appeal”.

Pedro Escosteguy

“Vampiro do rabo preso”, 1968 (Galeria Superfície)

“Born in Santana do Livramento, in Rio Grande do Sul state, Pedro was one of the main idealizers of the movement of Brazilian political art, in the 1960s, and holds a diverse production. Despite not being as renowned among the general public, he worked with artists such as Antonio Dias, Antonio Manoel, Rubens Gerchman and Carlos Vergara and participated in historical exhibitions, such as the acclaimed ‘Nova Objetividade Brasileira’ [New Brazilian Objectivity] (1967) and ‘Opinião 65’ [Opinion 65] (1965), in addition to the 8th and 9th editions of the Bienal de São Paulo”.
