|Galeria Nara Roesler is a leading Brazilian contemporary art gallery, representing seminal Brazilian and international artists who emerged in the 1950s as well as preeminent mid-career and emerging artists who dialogue with the currents put forth by these historical figures. |
Founded by Nara Roesler in 1989, the gallery has consistently fomented curatorial practice while upholding the utmost quality in art production. This has actively been put into practice through a select and rigorous exhibitions program created in close collaboration with its artists; the implementation and fostering of the Roesler Hotel program, a platform for curatorial projects; and continued support to artists beyond the gallery space, working with institutions and curators in offsite shows. In 2012, the gallery doubled its São Paulo exhibition space, in 2014 it expanded to Rio, and in 2015 it opened in New York City, continuing its mission to provide the best platform for its artists to show their work.
KURA, from the German word Kuratorium, means “curatorship”. Founded by Camila Yunes Guarita, KURA provides personalized guidance according to the profile and interests of each collector, to build unique and meaningful collections. Over the past few years, the art business in Brazil has experienced remarkable growth, with artistic production diversifying far beyond institutional boundaries, in a process which demands an increasingly close attention to that sector. In that context, KURA provides consultancy and guidance to collectors. KURA’s goal is to create collections that are personalized, structured, and full of identity.
