Profile

ABOUT Anita Schwartz has been actively participating in the local art scene for over 25 years.

In 2008, the gallery's headquarters were transferred to its new space of approximately 700 m², distributed in three stories.

With a careful selection of represented artists, important names within Brazilian contemporary art along with the bet on emerging figures, Anita Schwartz Galeria de Arte invests in the dissemination of the Brazilian art scene. With the objective of generating knowledge and bringing visitors closer to the creative process, the gallery promotes both solo and group shows, lectures, panels between curators, art critics, collectors and guest artists. The wish to serve as reference abroad where Brazilian art is concerned has made the gallery’s mission to guide its artists’ careers internationally, collaborating with foreign galleries and institutions and taking part in major contemporary art fairs. More recently, Anita Schwartz Galeria de Arte has opened its doors for foreign artists, encouraging exchanges, promoting aesthetic experiences, and intensifying the dialogue between different cultures.  Less
