During five days the Latitude Project brought together a group of international guests to participate in the action "Art Immersion Trip Art Weekend São Paulo 2017".

The group included participants from Mexico, Colombia, England, United States and Norway and stayed in São Paulo from November 8 to November 12.

In addition to exhibitions of 44 galleries during the art circuit, the guests were invited to "Museu de Arte de São Paulo Assis Chateaubriand – MASP", "Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo", "Feira PARTE 2017" and the Private Collection of Têra Queiróz and Fábio Faisal.

This year, the Art Weekend São Paulo brought 18 more galleries than in the previous edition, gathering 54 galleries. The event also promoted the action "galleries receive galleries", in which the local galleries receive those of other cities. 13 galleries from other Brazilian states shared spaces with galleries from São Paulo. The event is held by ABACT.

"The art weekend was extremely interesting for new visitors to Sao Paulo but also I am sure for residents. I thought that the idea of galleries hosting galleries from other cities was a good one, to share the beneficial exposure to new visitors and offer outsiders a wider impression of the kinds of gallery and work available in Brazil more generally."

"Brazilian market seems to be a very developed and strong one. The galleries are very active and play a very important role in the development of artists and the entire scene."
Amanda de la Garza Mata – Curator

"I left with the impression that it was strong, diverse, and sophisticated. In compare to other markets, I liked that it seemed that galleries worked a lot together, which is something that I do not see in my country of origin."
Maria Elena Ortiz-Romero - Associate Curator/Pérez Art Museum Miami
