Posted on Mar - 27 - 2019
Winter is coming to an end in the Northern hemisphere as it begins to cool down in the South. With April just around the corner, exciting events stir the art world in Latin America. South of the Equator three big events will gather many curators, galleries, artists, collectors and visitors to the different cities that host the exhibitions. Here are three fairs that will take place in the upcoming month, and if you happen to be in the region, be sure not to miss them!
São Paulo International Art Festival, Brazil
April 3rd – 7th
One of the most awaited events in the cultural city of São Paulo, SP-Art offers a stimulating agenda with a vibrant program presenting performances, tours, forums and many other activities, besides an exciting array of galleries, artists and projects. Created in 2005, the SP-Art represents over 2,000 artists at the historical Oscar Niemeyer Bienal Pavilion in its three sections Main, Solo and Repertoire.

Art Lima, Peru
April 4th – 7th
Founded in 2013, this new fair unites the most prominent galleries in Peru and the region as well as some international names. Although not as big and hyped up as the ArteBA and SP-Arte, Art Lima is gaining regional traction and offering a space for local talent, collectors and visitors to come together. This year the event will take place at the historic Escuela Superior de Guerra del Ejército del Perú in Chorrillos and will incorporate several sections including Solo Projects, Artistic Residency and Editorial.

April 11th -14th
Set in Buenos Aires the exhilarating capital of Argentina, the arteBA is one of the most important contemporary art fairs in the region. As a nonprofit, governmental organization founded in 1991 with the intention of stimulating the art markets of the area and promoting contemporary artists, the festival has proven to be a bridge between the international community with local actors. Although most of the galleries hail from Argentina and South America, Proyectos Ultravioleta from Guatemala will be a participant gallery as well as four Mexican Galleries.
