ArtRio 2023 | September 13 – 17
13th edition of the Rio de Janeiro Art Fair

The 13th edition of ArtRio will feature the first Brazilian and

international galleries in its program. In 2023, the art fair – one of the

most renowned events in its sector – will occupy an area 25% larger

than last year, focusing on providing more content. By embracing the

global discussions on and attitudes towards sustainability and

awareness, the fair will also be working on a myriad of actions to

reduce its wasteful impact.

The fair will take place from September 13 to 17, but ArtRio has a series of active and year-round initiatives and programs. Since its first edition, in 2011, its proposal has always embraced a yearly calendar, aiming to foster knowledge and contact with the arts amongst diverse audiences by encouraging museum and gallery visits, as well as promoting events in diverse spaces. Through this line of thinking, ArtRio stimulates the art market and debates on significant topics, all the while emphasizing accessibility to multiple audiences.


“We’ve arrived in 2023 looking towards the future and what we hope for the future of society and our planet. Through art and our actions, we aim to actively and effectively participate in the necessary changes and encourage new attitudes. Artistic movements always played crucial roles as catalysts for change and as unifiers, and I believe that ArtRio shares this responsibility, claims Brenda Valansi, president of ArtRio.


More than 100 collectors and curators from different countries, including the United States, Panama, Switzerland, Paraguay, Spain, Peru, Denmark, France, Turkey, Belgium, and Italy, have already confirmed their presence at the fair. Besides the fair, the program also offers visits to museums and institutions, galleries, studios, and private collections.


The ArtRio 2023 Curatorial Committee, responsible for the selection of participant galleries, is comprised of prominent gallery owners: Alexandre Roesler (Galeria Nara Roesler), Antonia Bergamin (Galeria Galatea), Filipe Masini and Eduardo Masini (Galeria Athena), Gustavo Rebello (Gustavo Rebello Arte), and Juliana Cintra (Silvia Cintra + Box 4).
