Galeria Eduardo Fernandes, Galeria Luisa Strina, Portas Vilaseca Galeria and Vermelho have booths at the main section of the fair, Principal, while Galeria Raquel Arnaud will present a solo show of Carla Chaim at Proyectos, curated by Emiliano Valdez
“Our participation in ARTBO over the past years has enabled us to establish a fruitful relationship with the international scene, both to a sales extent and also on the artistic production: today, Galeria Eduardo Fernandes represents four Colombian artists and we have a cultural exchange with Colombia that is vigorous and exciting. ARTBO is a precious occasion for international connections and Latitude’s support for our participation at the fair plays a key role. Latitude provides a support on the financial and promotional aspects that has proved essential for our gallery to grow beyond Brazil as we have been able to do lately.”
Eduardo Fernandes, director of Galeria Eduardo Fernandes
