RIO DE JANEIRO GALLERIES
A Gentil Carioca
Rua Gonçalvez Lêdo, 17, sobrado, Centro, Rio de Janeiro , 20060-020 / 55(21).2222.1651 / agentilcarioca.com.br
Mon – Fri, 12PM – 7PM
Conceived in a melting pot in order to captivate and diffuse art’s diversity within Brazil and the world, A GENTIL CARIOCA was founded 13 years ago, on September 6th, 2003, by its directors, artists Márcio Botner, Laura Lima and Ernesto Neto. We believe each work of art is a cultural particle with enough potential to irradiate culture and education. In the same way history can be thought, forged, documented and changed. A Gentil Carioca is a place where artistic or political contexts can be revitalized in many ways.

In 2016, when the gallery moves its headquarters to Leblon, LURIXS is committed to building a new path in its history, now installed in a place specially conceived for its activities. Designed by architect Miguel Pinto Guimarães, the four-story building is located at a noble street - rua Dias Ferreira, 214 - and it has two exhibitions rooms, an art storage area and a few offices. In this new address, the gallery keeps committed to presenting an intense program, with contemporary art shows and exhibitions of its magnificent collection. LURIXS curatorial axis is focused on Brazilian Concrete and Neo-concrete movements - and also on the complex legacy of those art movements in contemporary art.
Artur Fidalgo galeria
Rua Siqueira Campos, 143 - Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro - RJ, 22031-900, Brazil/ 55 21 2549-6278/ arturfidalgo.com.br
10am - 7pm
The gallery allys two terms that seem contradictory: continuity and change. This biorhythm made of oposits, reveals in time the crystallization of a path: the renovation one. It is with this thought that Artur Fidalgo shows contemporary art more vital, from different generations and provenances of Brazilian artists. In the gallery, he displays works of Camila Soato, Danilo Ribeiro, Fernando de La Rocque, José Damasceno and Victor Arruda. The gallery motivation is the same as the pieces of art that it shows: go beyond the expected.

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.

In January 2010 the gallery moved from its old headquarters in Ipanema to a new building, built especially to house the gallery in the gávea. The new venue also marks the moment when Silvia Cintra Galeria de Arte merged with Box 4, a gallery founded in 2006 by Juliana Cintra, daughter of Silvia, aimed at new artists. With the merger, the gallery Silvia Cintra + Box 4 intends to concentrate in a single space what is being done best in contemporary Brazilian art, with an intense dialogue between established artists and new talents.
