Galeria Nara Roesler is a leading contemporary art gallery, representing seminal Brazilian artists who emerged in the 1960s as well as pre-eminent mid career artists who dialog with the currents put forth by these historical figures. Founded by Nara Roesler in 1989 and led by Nara and her sons, Alexandre and Daniel Roesler, over the last twenty-five years the gallery has consistently fomented curatorial innovation while preserving the utmost quality in art production. This has actively been put into practice through a select and rigorous exhibitions program created in close collaboration with its artists; the implementation and fostering of the Roesler Hotel program: a platform for curatorial projects; and a continued support of artists beyond the gallery space, working with institutions and curators in off-site shows to present innovative initiatives and exciting projects. With a stable that includes groundbreakers - such as Abraham Palatnik, Antonio Dias, Hélio Oiticica, Paulo Bruscky, and Tomie Ohtake - and a younger generation headed by Artur Lescher, Carlito Carvalhosa, Lucia Koch, Marcos Chaves, Melanie Smith, and Virginia de Medeiros, the gallery is committed to preserving the legacy of historical figures while supporting the growing practice of emerging and established artists, both locally and internationally. In addition to doubling its São Paulo exhibition space in 2012, in 2014, the gallery opened its new branch in Rio de Janeiro, continuing its mission of being a vibrant and influential force within the art world.
