Galeria Luisa Strina

Founded in 1974, the gallery represents a mixture of established and emerging artists, always showing the most illustrious works available in the Brazilian and international contemporary art market.

Galeria Luisa Strina was born from the experience as merchant of Luisa Strina, that opened her own gallery in 1974. In more than forty years of history, Strina worked with influential artists and contributed to launch others, such as several exponents of the so-called “Geraçao 70” movement.
Moreover, Galeria Luisa Strina was the first Latin gallery to take part in Art Basel in 1992.
The artists represented have developed international careers while their number has grown in time including international and local, emerging and more famous personalities, such as Leonor Antunes, Olafur Eliasson, Alexandre da Cunha, Fernanda Gomes, Brian Griffiths.
