Artefato Gallery is a London-based online art gallery showing curated works from selected Brazilian contemporary artists for a broader UK & European audience.
The mission of the gallery is to bridge various artists communities from Brazil and provide its artists greater exposure to new markets
Brazilian Contemporary Art has its roots in Modernism when the concept of ‘Antropophagy’ in Oswald de Andrade’s Cannibalist Manifesto in 1928, brought a new post-colonial paradigm for the creation of a Brazilian identity and culture of its own, embodied in all Brazilian cultural manifestations since, including Tropicalism in the sixties.
Almost a century later, in the midst of Brazil’s - and the world’s – neoliberal vortex of Amazon deforestation, climate crisis, indigenous and human rights violations, censorship and media manipulation, surveillance, commodification, fragmentation… never has it been felt this more urgent to bring the decolonial conversation forward, bridging connected realities, and fostering critical thought and disruption on the colonial matrix of power.
