Presenting an overview of modern and contemporary art, and serving as thermometer of the creative economy, it brought in 2017, to Brazil’s cultural epicenter, more than 150 art and design galleries and their multiple artists – translated in all different formats, such as painting, sculpture, print, photography, furniture, installation and video.

Repertório

16 galleries

This year we debuted the Repertório [Repertoire] sector, curated by Jacopo Crivelli Visconti, conceived with the objective of introducing Brazilian and international artists fundamental for understanding contemporary artistic practices. The selection follows a chronological period – artists selected were born before the 1940s, and their works presented were produced before the end of the 1980s.
