Art Immersion Trip

Due to contributions from partners, it was possible to procure sufficient financial support for the arrival of a large group of 22 international guests. This activity included visits to two destinations: the 30th Bienal de São Paulo and the second edition of the ArtRio fair.

During the days they spent in São Paulo, the guests visited all 24 Latitude galleries in the city. They also had the opportunity to stop by institutions, private collections and alternative spaces, and visited the Bienal, personally welcomed by Venezuelan curator Luis Pérez-Oramas.

As part of the official schedule of panels at ArtRio, the Latitude staff presented the Sectorial Survey during a debate realized between researcher and consultant Dr. Ana Letícia Fialho and guest speaker, French sociologist Alain Quemin. This was the first public presentation of this work that has since become a benchmark of reliable data on the sector for a variety of publications and studies.

"I haven’t had any big idea of Brazilian Art Market before this travel. Now I see it is one of the most booming branches of Brazilian economy/ market/ industry - Hanna Wróblewska

“While I had read about the Brazilian contemporary art market, this is the first time that I was able to experience it first hand. It seems to be going through a boom period and is using its resources in interesting ways. The dealers, during this exciting time in Brazil, are extremely knowledgable about the global art market and very passionate about the work they are showing. “ - Ilana Michelle Shamoon

“I was very impressed with the Brazilian situation, with professionalism, organization and internationalization of most of the Galleries, as well as the quality of many Brazilian artists.” - Rita Maria de Figueiredo Sales Lougares
