The leading Latin American art fair will return for its 11th edition in the Ciccillo Matarazzo pavilion at the Ibirapuera Park in Sao Paulo, Brazil, designed by Pritzker Laureate and Oscar Niemeyer. The show will host over 140 of the world’s most prominent modern and contemporary galleries from 17 countries, such as Austria, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Portugal, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, the USA, the UK and Uruguay alongside more than 80 galleries from Brazil.
This year, the main section will present 86 returning galleries including Gagosian Gallery, David Zwirner, Lisson Gallery, Marian Goodman Gallery, Mendes Wood, Luisa Strina and Vermelho. 12 new galleries will participate for the first time such as Goodman Gallery, The Approach, and Alexander Gray Associates.
The 2015 edition will also include the third year of the Showcase sector, a section highlighting works by up to three emerging artists and the Solo section, which this time will be curated by María Inés Rodriguéz and Rodrigo Moura. This year will also host Open Plan, a section dedicated to installations curated by Cuenca Biennial and Jacopo Crivelli Visconti.
Performance is a new section coordinated by Cauê Alves, curator of the Brazil Pavilion in the 56th Venice Biennale, and curated by Marcos Galon and Juliana Moraes, professor of performance of the Belas Artes University in São Paulo. There will also be a new Talks programme coordinated with the Brazilian art magazine, Arte!Brasileiros that will be organising focused panel discussions for the event.
