ABOUT THE FAIR
ArtRio is more than an art fair; it is a unique event where visitors can view artworks by the great masters and up-and-coming artists. ArtRio is active on the art scene throughout the year promoting new artists and galleries by supporting exhibitions and study opportunities. The event is creating an artistic legacy for the Brazilian people who, eager consumers of art and culture, visit the fair in large numbers.
An important goal of ArtRio is spreading the practice of donating works to museums and public collections in Brazil. During the 2014 edition of the fair, ArtRio was a partner of Rio Art Museum (MAR), encouraging visitors of the event to donate exhibits – previously selected and identified in the galleries by the directors of the institution. At that time, the Museum received more than 40 donations acquired at the fair.
Renowned national and international galleries of the modern and contemporary art market.
A program dedicated to new galleries, with experimental curatorial projects. Focused on emerging contemporary art, the galleries develop innovative artistic proposals especially for the fair.
Curated by Carolyn H. Drake and Bernardo José de Souza. With an unprecedented theme, this program will bring together works by Brazilian and foreign artists.
