Brazil is the powerhouse for contemporary art and design in South America. It hosts international art fairs – Parte, Art Rio and SP-Arte – and is home to the epic Inhotim art park, owned by mining billionaire, Bernardo Paz.
The art scene in other parts of the continent focuses around a handful of notable galleries and some remarkable private collections. These remain very much word of mouth with limited public access. Bogota, Santiago, Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Rio and Lima are the cities to watch. We organise specialised art tours with unrivalled access to some of the continent’s most prominent collections, as well as meetings with their owners and curators, and visits to artists’ studios. If you fall in love with a particular piece, we will make the necessary arrangements for it to be sent home for you. Ex-Sotheby’s, Pepa Portman, heads up this arm of the business.
