Athena Contemporâneaback

Athena Contemporânea

Athena Contemporânea Gallery runs in the art market in the city of Rio de Janeiro since 2011 and it has rapidly established itself as an innovative space for production, discussion and dissemination of contemporary art in Brazil. With the aim of fostering new artistic research, the gallery's main proposal is promoting the work of young artists from Brazil and abroad, developing a dialogue to stimulate critical thinking.


Beyond of being an exhibition space, the gallery seeks to position itself as a place for research and artistic exchanges, always looking for innovative initiatives in the current art. Thus seriously invests in partnerships with young curators and promotes the career development of its artists, enabling their participation in cultural projects with public and private sector, public awards, artistic residencies and biennials.


Ocupa-se is one of the proposals fully encouraged by the gallery and it consists in granting a guest artist the free occupation of the gallery space, as a place for conceptual search and for development of his artistic expression. Once a year, it offers the visitors a new opportunity to connect with the artist's production, which generates new forms of art readings and discussions about artistic production.


Likewise, the regular program of the gallery is scheduled with the aim of promoting artistic freedom and of assisting the artists in the conceptual and intellectual development of their work. Still, the gallery consolidates his role as a cultural agent by stimulating a program that opens space and path to social, political and philosophical discourses which are essential to enable the society to perceive the world as a process.


The participation in major national and international exhibitions, has given the opportunity to expand the network of contacts and to catalyze other cultural projects at Athena Contemporânea. Above all, it gives the public the opportunity of approaching the works through a new conceptual and aesthetic look designed especially for each event. We believe that in this way artworks are no longer perceived just as objects but they assume a character able to touch and change people and their surroundings.
