As the Armory Show opened their annual art fair in NY this week, the participating Brazilian galleries flaunted a range of works evident of the ever-growing Brazilian art market and scene. São Paulo’s Luciana Brito Galeria united two disparate figures in the Brazilian art scope – the wonderfully innovative and rarely seen works of Brazilian multi-disciplinary and quintessential modernist Waldemar Cordeiro (1925 – 1973) paired with works of contemporary conceptual artist Ricardo Basbaum. Across the hall, Galeria Nara Roesler exhibited a selection of multi-generational Brazilian artists – Vik Muniz, Lucia Koch, Raul Mourão and a mesmerizing wall piece by Abraham Palatnik. ESPASSO provided the furnishings for both booths, further contextualizing the contemporary and modern link represented in the artworks within Brazilian design. While Roesler’s booth paired Carlos Motta‘s lively Rio dining chair, designed in 2011, with Ricardo Fasanello’s 1970’s Ciranda and Sergio Rodrigues‘ 1988 Mac side tables, the booth of Luciana Brito Galeria also featured Motta’s Rio dining chair along Isay Weinfeld‘s IW dining table from 2006, vintage 1970’s CIMO armchairs and the re-edition of Gregori Warchavchic’s beautiful Revisteiro side table, originally designed in 1930.
