Introduction

The first edition of the International Art Fair of Brasilia takes place June 5-8 and will gather 33 galleries

 In its 10th edition, SP-Arte, the main fair in the Brazilian art circuit and among the top 5 international fairs in the world, will launch the first edition of SP-Arte Brasilia gathering 33 Brazilian galleries from June 5-8 at the Shopping Iguatemi Brasilia, Lago Norte. The galleries come from 5 different Brazilian States: Bahia, Minas Gerais, Paraná, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and the Federal District.

 The art fair in Brasilia will be the second spin-off from the original SP-Arte. The other fair, being SP-Arte/Foto founded in 2007, has become one of the main events focused on photography in Brazil.

 The city with the highest GDP per capita in the country, Brasilia was chosen as the first site for SP-Arte outside of São Paulo for its historical and cultural relevance. “Brasilia is a city that was designed to unite the landscape of the region with the iconic vision of two of Brazil’s most important architects, Lúcio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer”, says Fernanda, who highlights the prospect of art in the capital. “The city is big, it houses important museums, cultural institutions and artists that have made names for themselves in Brazil and abroad. After the vibrant music scene in Brasilia during the 1980s, now is the time for visual art in the capital.”

 Besides being the capital of the country, Brasilia is widely considered a triumph of the 20th century. The city occupies a special place in Brazilian art history. “To start the International Art Fair of Brasilia, with dozens of Brazilian galleries from various states, exhibiting hundreds of Brazilian and foreign artists in the center of the country, is for all of us a return to a euphoric period, a moment of celebration,” declares Fernanda Feitosa, the creator and director of SP-Arte.

 SP-Arte Brasilia is sponsored by Itaú, Oi, Oi Futuro, and Iguatemi Brasilia and receives support from Air France, Chandon, and Minalba.
