Market SP-Arte 2015

From a Gorgeous Bridget Riley to a Gargantuan Pile of Cookies: A Look Around SP-Arte 2015

When the 11th edition of the SP-Arte fair opened to invited guests this morning at 11 a.m. in Saõ Paulo, all was quiet. The few collectors on hand strolled through the airy, curvaceous 1957 building that Oscar Niemeyer designed for the city’s Bienal, taking their time. But now it is mid-afternoon, and the place is humming. The booths of the 141 galleries are jam-packed. There go the Rubells! It is too early to talk business, but one can at least take a look at what dealers—from big guns like Gagosian, David Zwirner, and Lisson to a wide array of Brazilian galleries—brought to the fair. Some highlights follow below. SP-Arte opens to the public on Thursday, April 9, and runs through Sunday. Click an image below to view pieces from the fair.
