Art Travel

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.

  • I just wanted to say what a triumph the whole expedition was. All brilliantly arranged by you and your team. And I really don't think I would have changed a thing. We adored it all and felt we spent just the right amount of time at each place. Each hotel . was stunning. Best rooms, very quiet, very big and with great views. And really good food at all of them. You also successfully managed to minimise or vary the travel - which was quite an achievement considering the distances we covered. Catching very early or late pm flights where possible really works as you don't waste the day. We loved our guides . All very intelligent, well informed and spoke excellent English. So, a thousand thanks. We will be recommending you and PlanSouthAmerica to all our friends. Tom and I are already talking about a return next February.
