Opened in November 2016 by Fortes D’Aloia & Gabriel, Carpintaria does not fit into a conventional definition of a branch. Instead, it broadens the scope of the group´s activities by making use of a dynamic and interdisciplinary programming. Its experimental vocation allows testing different models of exhibitions and promoting encounters of duos and trios of artists, without being limited to the so common solo shows in galleries. The dialogue with other languages is also explored, so that exhibitions are not necessarily restricted to the visual arts. The project is part of the Vila Portugal complex, a cultural and gastronomic center located in the premises of Jockey Club of Rio de Janeiro, and it occupies the building where an old carpentry used to function – hence the name choice. The space was remodeled by Pedro Evora and Pedro Rivera, from Rua Arquitetos, with the concern of keeping its original features as conserved as possible. The only radical change was the elevation of the ceiling height, but the wooden A-frames and the original tiles have been kept. It is a large and versatile space, overlooking the racetrack and the city´s mountains.

Baró Galeria opened its doors in 2010 and since then managed to establish itself as a reference on International art in the Brazilian art circuit. Directed by Spanish expatriate Maria Baró, the gallery is based in São Paulo on a 1,500m2 renovated warehouse in the burgeoning neighborhood of Santa Cecília. Baró Galeria aims to enhance the dialogue between artists, curators, collectors and cultural institutions. Baró priority is displaying site-specif works and curatorial projects with a strong emphasis on artists from the 70’s and 80’s, such as Philippine David Medalla, Mexican Felipe Ehrenberg and Argentinian Roberto Jacoby enabling them to coexist with a team of young talents. The constant flow of ideas, projects and artwork gives the space a unique environment. The gallery also hosts a residency program for young emerging artists.

In the thirteen years of its existence, through encouraging new ideas and discourses developed by emerging or already established artists, Galeria Vermelho has secured its niche as an alternative to the widespread rigidity of commercial art spaces. An initiative by Eliana Finkelstein and Eduardo Brandão, the gallery was opened in 2002 after an intensive process of remodeling and restoration of three small houses located in Villa #350, on Rua Minas Gerais, in the city of São Paulo’s Higienópolis District. Conceived and developed by architects Paulo Mendes da Rocha and José Armênio de Brito Cruz, the design incorporated exhibition spaces to the already existing architectural structure, while also transforming the area between the three houses into a large open square adjoining the main building’s 120-square-meter façade. A total of 90 different projects have already been presented on this huge wall, including paintings, collages, excavations, projections, installations and prospections

Galeria Nara Roesler is a leading Brazilian contemporary art gallery, representing seminal Brazilian and Latin American artists who emerged in the 1950s as well as preeminent mid-career and emerging artists who dialog with the currents put forth by these historical figures. Founded by Nara Roesler in 1989, the gallery has consistently fomented curatorial practice while preserving the utmost quality in art production. This has actively been put into practice through a select and rigorous exhibitions program created in close collaboration with its artists; the implementation and fostering of the Roesler Hotel program, a platform for curatorial projects; and continued support of artists beyond the gallery space, working with institutions and curators in offsite shows. In 2012 the gallery doubled its São Paulo exhibition space, in 2014 expanded to Rio, and in 2015 opened in New York City, continuing its mission to provide the best platform for its artists to show their work.
