ARTUR FIDALGO GALERIA (curator: Fernanda Pequeno)


Artur Fidalgo galeria celebrated thirteen years in 2013, combining two apparently contradictory terms: continuity and change. Made up of opposites, this biorhythm reveals the crystallization of a path over time: that of renewal.
With this in mind, Artur Fidalgo exhibits the most vital contemporary art of various generations and provenances. With the characteristic malleability of renewal, its space has housed exhibitions by emerging artists such as Danilo Ribeiro, Deborah Engel, Derlon, Fernando de La Rocque, Flávia Metzler, Flávio Cerqueira, Gabriel Centurion, Khalil Charif, Malu Saddi, Nino Cais, Rafael Carneiro, Sergio Allevato, Sofia Borges as well as by renowned artists who do not often show their work in Rio de Janeiro, such as Albano Afonso, Carlos Bevilacqua, Edgard de Souza, Ernesto Neto, Hildebrando de Castro, Iran do Espírito Santo, José Damasceno, Paulo Climachauska, Rosana Palazyan, Sérgio Sister and Victor Arruda.
To this wide-ranging cast may be added names from international contemporary art such as that of North American vídeo artist Bill Lundberg.
Since its opening as Escritório de Arte in 1987, Fidalgo has been working with artists such as Amílcar de Castro, Artur Barrio, Carlos Vergara, Mira Schendel, and Tunga. Inaugurated in 2000, Artur Fidalgo gave a new form to the work he had already begun. Expanded in 2005, the growth of the physical space has been accompanied by the growth of its importance on the Brazilian and international art scenes alike.
This path has been built with exhibitions by Anna Bella Geiger, Artur Barrio, Antonio Dias, Eduardo Sued, Fernanda Gomes, Franklin Cassaro, Ivens Machado, Marcos Bonisson, Marcos Chaves, Marta Jourdan, Ricardo Basbaum, Rosângela Rennó, Vicente de Mello and Waltércio Caldas, among other important names in Brazilian contemporary art. A step-by-step path corresponds to a face-to-face mode of relationship. A personality of this nature, and its link with experimentalism, have provided exhibitions by artists like Cláudio Paiva and Umberto Costa Barros, whose work rarely appears in commercial galleries.
His personal style is reflected in the originality of his gallery’s location: in the Cidade Copacabana shopping center, designed by Henrique Mindlin, one of the most important architects of the 1960s, with its great retro-futurist circular ramp and its past of memorable shows in the Arena, Tereza Rachel and Opinião theaters, the building is part of a cultural history which the gallery renews. Artur Fidalgo’s motivation and that of the art he exhibits are one and the same: to go beyond.
