Established in 1997, Luciana Brito Galeria has performed a pivotal role in the consolidation of the local art market, and has been one of the pioneering Brazilian galleries at leading art fairs.
While we do not hold any set curatorial biases, the gallery has internationally renowned standards for casting artists, and plays an important two-way role: both to disseminate the Brazilian art worldwide and to promote locally the work of globally relevant artists. As the Brazilian representative of Alex Katz, Allan McCollum, Anthony McCall, Leandro Erlich, Liliana Porter and Marina Abramovic, the gallery was responsible for the first solo show of those artists here.
We also try to balance the presence of emerging artists (such as Paula Garcia, Pedro Caetano, Rafael Carneiro, Raphael Zarka, Tiago Tebet) with those who are acknowledged by art history, such as the artists mentioned above, as well as Geraldo de Barros and Waldemar Cordeiro – the two major names of Brazilian constructivism, who attained national and international recognition thanks to our efforts over several years.
The gallery also plays a decisive role in both building and projecting its artists’ careers, and in preserving and propagating highly important artistic legacies, such as those of Thomaz Farkas and Garpar Gasparian. Not to mention, of course, the dissemination of other active and established artists, such as Bosco Sodi, Caio Reisewitz, Eder Santos, Fabiana de Barros & Michel Favre, Héctor Zamora, João Luiz Musa, Pablo Lobato, Raphael Zarka, Regina Silveira, Rochelle Costi and Tobias Putrih.
