London and Bogota, 4 October 2013, Art Media Agency (AMA).
Latitude, an organisation which seeks to act as a platform for Brazilian galleries abroad, has announced its forthcoming Autumn projects, which will see Brazilian galleries have “record representation” at art fairs in both London and Bogota.
Eleven Brazilian Galleries are to display leading and emerging contemporary art at Frieze London (17 – 20 October), Frieze Masters and the Moving Image Art Fair. Latitude is also to work with Brazilian galleries to produce projects at artBO in Botoa, Colombia, to run from 25 to 28 October, and at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2013 (to run between 9 to 13 October).
Galleries participating in Frieze Art Fair London include: Galeria Forte Vilaça, to present conceptual minimalist work by Iran Do Espirito Santo, alongside pieces by José Damasceno; A Gentil Carioca, to present installation works by “pioneering” Brazilian artists Helio Oiticica, Cabelo and Neville D’Almeida; and Galeria Luisa Strina, to present pieces by 2013 Absolut Art Award winner Renata Lucas, and Mexican artist Pedro Reyes.
A number of galleries are to present works in the Spotlight section at Frieze Masters, with the intricate wood cuts and etchings of Anna Mario Maiolino, to be shown by Galeria Millan, being forecast as a highlight, along with works by Rubem Valentim, on display by Berenice Arvani, and works by Argentinean artist Liliana Porter, on display at Luciana Brito Galeria, amongst others. A video installation entitled Innerself by Luiz Duva is to be shown by Galeria Pilar at the Moving Image Art Fair.
Highlights of artBO are to include a display by Baró Galeria, which is to present work by Patrick Hamilton, Lourival Cuquinha, Felipe Ehrenberg, Dario Escobar, Moris, Iván Navarro, Elena Damiani and Ricardo Alcaide. Also participating in the event is Galeria Jaqueline Martins, to present photographs and videos by Dudu Santos, Daniel Nogueira and Edwin Sanchez. Exhibitions will also be presented by Galeria Luisa Strina and Galeria Millan.
A display at Frankfurt Book Fair, entitled “Beyond the Library”, is to be curated by Ana Luiza Fonseca, and will bring together 11 Brazilian artists, whose works use books and literacy as a central component of their practice.
