At last Art Basel Miami Beach 2023, we captivated visitors with the bold expression of Antonio Henrique Amaral. His works, notably the "Bananas" series, provided a striking visual chronicle of the Brazilian Military Dictatorship, pushing boundaries and prompting reflections on artistic resistance.


A Coleção Imaginária de Paulo Kuczynski

Launched in 2022, the Instituto Tomie Ohtake visita exhibition program aims to give the general public access to works by established artists that are rarely shown in private collections. Presented under different curatorial interpretations, these exhibitions take advantage of unlikely combinations of artists and works to contemplate new perspectives on an already consolidated history of art.


The second edition of the project was based on the Institute's invitation to Jacopo Crivelli Visconti, who proposed a journey through the “A Coleção Imaginária de Paulo Kuczynski". The exhibition brings together some of the most important works that have passed through the sieve of Kuczynski, art dealer and collector, over almost 50 years of activity, a different approach from the first edition of the program, which brought to the Tomie Ohtake Institute works from a single collection (Igor Queiroz).


Art Basel Miami 2022

For its first participation in the Art Basel Miami Beach fair, in the Survey sector, from November 29 to December 3, 2022, the gallery presented the project "Volpi & Ione: The brightness of the tempera", proposing a dialogue between the works of the two artists.


SP-Arte 2022

In this edition of SP-Arte, Paulo Kuczynski Escritório de Arte presents a selection of modern Brazilian artists, such as Alfredo Volpi, Pancetti and Lasar Segall, as well as works by international artists such as Torres García, Le Parc, Vieira da Silva, Paul Klee, Henry Moore and Jean Arp.

Among the works, we highlight a beautiful still life by Giorgio Morandi, a Parisian landscape by Eliseu Visconti and a selection of paintings by Di Cavalcanti, from the 1920s to the 1950s, one of the greatest names in Brazilian modernism and creator of the event that consolidated the movement in the country: the week of modern art of 1922, which completed 100 years in February this year.


Volpi Popular

This survey exhibition covers five decades of the career of Alfredo Volpi (Lucca, Italy, 1896–São Paulo, 1988) and is framed by the artist’s continuous interest in images, characters, and narratives from Brazilian popular culture. With 96 paintings, the show is divided into seven non-chronological thematic sections: Saints; Portraits; Seascapes; Nautical and Playful Themes; Urban and Rural Scenes; Façades; and Flags and Masts.


Clarice Constellation

Celebrating the work and legacy of the writer Clarice Lispector (1920-1977), IMS Paulista brings the Constelação Clarice exhibition. An investigation of the author's poetics, curated by Eucanaã Ferraz and Veronica Stigger, the show brings together approximately 300 items, including manuscripts, photographs, letters, records, press materials and other documents.

To create these interlocutions, the concept of constellation was adopted. Eleven centers present works in different media, created by 26 visual artists working between the 1940s and 1970s. A unique history of Brazilian art is thus combined in the feminine, with works that only Clarice's literary universe allows to gather, proposing a web of relationships capable of generating new and surprising reciprocal readings.


Compositions for insurgent times

Connecting the museum’s interior and its modernist architecture with the exterior, the exhibition combines artistic projects specially created for the show with works on loan form other private and museum collections, thus offering a reflection on processes and models of articulating life. October 9 through February 6, MAM-RJ.

Biennial Foundation

As part of the program for the 34th São Paulo Bienal - Though It’s Dark, Still I Sing, the Fundação Bienal de São Paulo presents the show Vento (Wind), open to visitation through December 13, 2020, at the Ciccillo Matarazzo Pavilion. Named for Joan Jonas’ 1968 film Wind, the exhibition mainly features immaterial works in audio or video, seeking to emphasize a sense of space and distance rarely experienced by the exhibition-going public.



In addition to such emblematic pieces as Nota sobre a morte imprevista (Note on an unexpected death) [see photo], the exhibition "Antonio Dias: derrotas e vitórias” (Antonio Dias: defeats and victories) serves up a collection that spans his entire oeuvre, from the first abstract works from the early 60s to his very last painting. Curatorial text by Felipe Chaimovich.



At Artrio 2023, we showcased 50 exquisite artworks, a captivating journey through the diverse world of art. Each piece, a unique narrative, celebrates creativity's boundless depth. We're thankful for the opportunity to share this treasure with you, as art transcends time and space, touching the human spirit. Looking forward to inspiring more in future exhibitions.


SP-Arte 2023

For SP-Arte 2023, the Paulo Kuczynski Gallery presents a selection of works by Brazilian and international artists, ranging from the dawn of the 20th century with a beautiful painting by Eliseu Visconti, to more recent works from the 1980s such as Burle Marx's "Composição Abstrata" and a lavish tempera with gold leaf by Mira Schendel. Two of the highlights of the booth are Abraham Palatnik's "Objeto Cinético" (1966) and Lygia Clark's "Bicho" (1956/1960). The gallery will also exhibit works by Alfredo Volpi, Almir Mavignier, Amilcar de Castro, Antonio Dias, Bruno Giorgi, Cícero Dias, Cruz Diez, Flávio de Carvalho, Frans Krajcberg, Ismael Nery, Lygia Clark, Maria Leontina, Samson Flexor, Tarsila do Amaral, Vicente do Rego Monteiro, Victor Brecheret and Vieira da Silva.


SP-Arte Brazilian Routes

Concentrating on the characteristics of forms, planes and colors, the concrete movement, which gained traction in Brazil in the 1960s, plunged the pictorial and sculptural output of the day into the dimension of logic and abstraction.  Such figures as Willys de Castro, Mira Schendel, and Sérgio Camargo operated out of the balance and imbalance between image, word, light and shade to create reflections on the nature of order, chaos, and the corporeal vis-à-vis the spiritual. Under the title “Sensible Geometry in Brazilian Art”, the gallery gathers a number of works by major constructivist and concrete artists, emphasizing pieces focused on the expressions and multiple sensibilities generated by forms.


Tarsila: the two and the only one

Paulo Kuczynski Escritório de Arte is pleased to announce the exhibition Tarsila: the two and the only one. Tarsila do Amaral (Capivari, SP, 1886 – São Paulo, SP, 1973) was a fundamental figure of the Brazilian modernist movement, producing throughout her life a powerful and innovative work, which went through several moments, such as the painting Pau- Brazil, Antropofágica and its social phase. Two important works that are often reproduced in the vast existing bibliography on the artist form the central axis of the exhibition. They are Landscape with Two Little Pigs, from 1929, and Second Class, from 1933. Because they form part of private collections, they were rarely seen by the public, thus constituting a unique opportunity to get in touch with them firsthand.

Ione Saldanha - The invented city

New solo exhibition by Ione Saldanha on display at MASP.  At the heart of Saldanha's work is a concern with a certain representation or invention of the city and architecture, whether real or imagined, hence the title of this exhibition: Ione Saldanha: the invented city. In this context, the artist moved from the initial urban landscapes to progressively abstract architectural constructions, represented in a fluid, delicate and organic way, always bringing the artist's handprint visible on the surface of the paintings, whether two-dimensional or three-dimensional. The Bambus, his most iconic, complex, and truly innovative works, are upright sculptures that evoke popular and vernacular Brazilian culture. Of an anthropomorphic character, they make reference both to the city and the forest, as well as to the subject who inhabits them, acquiring an installation quality, especially when exposed in sets.

The title of this exhibition is inspired by that of a solo show by the artist entitled Cidade Inventada, held at Galeria Relevo in Rio de Janeiro, in 1962. 



São Paulo is going to host a new art fair next year. ArtSampa will be directed by Brenda Valansi, partner of the event in partnership with Dream Factory, and is confirmed for the month of March at OCA.

The fair, focused on Brazilian art, will have galleries inside Oscar Niemeyer's building, and a series of events held outdoors, in Burle Marx's garden.
