Opened in 2004, Galeria Leme has promoted ever since an innovative program, including both international and local artists who work with a wide range of media. In its researching of international talents, Galeria Leme also invited foreign artists to have in its spaces their first solo exhibition in Latin America.
In 2012, the gallery moved to a new bigger location, once more designed by the Pritzker Prize winner Paulo Mendes da Rocha, where it kept spreading diversity and exchanges in art, consistently with its philosophy.
