Galleries in Debate: Changes and Opportunitiesback

Roundtable “Means and reasons for internationalization”

Roundtable “Means and reasons for internationalization”


Galleries in Debate: Changes and Opportunities was the first seminar held in Brazil aimed at professionals in the art market. The event discussed innovative perspectives on the sector with a special focus on the role of galleries in the current and future arts system. Brazilian and international guests debated with the public through roundtables, presentations, speed-dating sessions and workshops.

Idealized by the Latitude Project and curated by Benjamin Seroussi, Galleries in Debate: Changes and Opportunities brought together 220 professionals from the sector on March 27 and 28 at Itaú Cultural.

"Galerists, artists, fair directors, collectors, curators, critics, producers and representatives of cultural institutions, together with a wide range of specialists (assemblers, dispatchers, lawyers, among others), make up an ever-growing economic-cultural complex called the "art world". In this context, the work of art occupies a central place, determinant - and determined by the system in which it is inserted.The complex relations of cooperation that these agents weave between each other inform and impact the artistic production, its formats, their conditions of circulation, visibility and valorization. Galleries in Debate: Changes and Opportunities intends to expose these relations, to point out the challenges that they pose and to ascertain the knowledge of the sector about its own functioning." - Benjamin Seroussi
