Pavilhão da Bienal, Parque Ibirapuera (portão 03) | São Paulo - Brazil



With a collection among the most important of the country, Galeria Estação, inaugurated at the end of 2004, devoted itself to revealing and promoting the production of Brazilian non-scholar art. The gallery was responsible for including this language in the contemporary art scene, while editing publications and holding individual and collective exhibitions inside and outside the country.

Galeria Estação works with well-known self-taught artists from various regions of Brazil, such as Agostinho Batista de Freitas, Alcides dos Santos, Amadeo Luciano LORENZATO, Artur Pereira, Aurelino dos Santos, Chico Tabibuia, Cícero Alves dos Santos-Véio, GTO, Gilvan Samico, Itamar Julião, João Cosmo Felix-Nino, José Antônio da Silva, José Bezerra, Manuel Graciano, Maria Auxiliadora, Mirian Inês da Silva, Neves Torres, among others.

Currently the gallery has been incorporating to its cast artists belonging to the contemporary artistic circuit whose works interact with non-scholar creation, such as José Bernnô, Germana Monte-Mór, Moisés Patrício,  Santídio Pereira and André Ricardo.

Starting from this rare competence, the space is able to offer a historical and current panorama of a production that went beyond the limits of self-thought art, at the same time as it investigates names that, independently of the formation, work with elements from the same source.

Since 2005, SP–Arte – São Paulo’s International Art Festival – is a global arts event that brings together renowned art and design galleries. During the event, local museums and cultural institutions host a strong parallel program including panel discussions, exhibition openings, and special visits that offer an overview of São Paulo’s contemporary art circuit. SP–Arte plays an essential role in Latin America’s art market and strongly contributes with Brazil’s creative economy.

In our 18th edition, happening April 6th through 10th 2022 at the Bienal Pavilion, 100 art galleries and more than 30 design studios, apart from publishers and institutional participations are spread across the Pavilion’s three floors. This year, there are also special projects that seek to approximate the market and the general public of autonomous agents (artists, self-managed spaces) that constitute the art system.

One of them is Radar SP–Arte, which will be composed of five collectives and autonomous spaces, presenting their projects in small commercial or institutional exhibitions. The exhibition Hora grande, curated by Felipe Molitor, which counts on nine artists without commercial representation, is also a part of Radar SP–Arte.

Apart from Radar SP–Arte, the exhibition Arte natureza: ressignificar para viver, curated by Ana Carolina Ralston, reflects on the relations between art and sustainability, with big names such as Ernesto Neto, Joseph Beuys, Frans Krajcberg and Daiara Tukano.

During the weekends that precede the Fair, openings and closures of exhibitions, guided tours and celebrations in many galleries in São Paulo happen, mobilizing the city’s cultural itinerary. SP–Arte Weekend happens March 26 and 27 in galleries and cultural spaces of the Barra Funda, Centro & Higienópolis circuit, and April 02 and 03 at the Vila Madalena, Pinheiros & Jardins circuit. The programming is spread through many locations under the Other circuits label.

There’s more! The traditional Talks program will be promoted at Arena Iguatemi, at the Pavilion’s second floor. The curator Jacopo Crivelli Visconti, who was the curatorial head of the last Bienal de São Paulo, and Ana Roman, assistant curator of the last Bienal de São Paulo, organize and conduct conversations with artists and curators on April 7, 8 and 9. On April 7 though 10, Arena Iguatemi also hosts publishing releases. In its spare time, the space serves as a social and rest area for all visitors.

Vivo, Rede, Iguatemi, Orizon and Unipar are SP–Arte’s master sponsors. It is also sponsored by Tiffany & Co., Liberty Seguros, Beck’s, Chandon and Terrazas as its official beverages, apart from an assortment of crucial partners that make the event possible, such as café Orfeu, Capim Santo restaurant, Le Pain Quotidien, Finarte, Água na Caixa, Jardineiro Fiel, ,ovo and Kamy.
