SP-Arte/2016 applications now open

4 Aug 2015, 3:23 pm

Galleries are invited to join the SP-Arte, São Paulo International Art Fair for its 12th edition.

SP-Arte/2016 will take place April 7–10, 2016, with a VIP/Professional Preview on April 6. SP-Arte is the leading art fair in Latin America, presenting the best of modern and contemporary art. Galleries interested in participating in the 2016 edition of SP-Arte can access the online application here.

In 2015, SP-Arte experienced one of its best editions yet, welcoming 140 participating galleries from 17 countries. Visitors included collectors, curators, academics, and museum professionals from around the world.

As the German newspaper Die Welt noted, “The artistic life in São Paulo is flourishing as in the golden ’50s, when Oscar Niemeyer’s futuristic buildings were inaugurated in Ibirapuera Park and the Bienal de São Paulo, the second-largest Biennial in the world to date, claimed cultural validity. This week, some feel themselves reminded of Miami when the Art Basel moved there 10 years ago.”

Applicants can choose from one of the following multidisciplinary sections available at SP-Arte: Main sector, Showcase sector, Solo sector and Open Plan.

All galleries should have a permanent exhibition space with at least three years of experience. Galleries are encouraged to submit a detailed exhibition project for the Fair that includes a description of the installation and artwork images.

The deadline to submit all applications and necessary documents is October 15.

For additional questions, please contact application@sp-arte.com. All applications will be reviewed by the Fair organizers and Selection Committee and a final list of exhibitors will be announced by December 2015 on SP-Arte’s website.
