Le Jazz Brasserie (Jardins)
Telephone (11) 3063 2149
Following two years sharing a space with Barra Funda's Baró Galeria, this hip young ‘emerging’ gallery is all grown up now, and settling into a brand new, purpose-built gallery in Jardins. The new building features a striking facade made of exposed bricks placed sideways-on to create a surface with hundreds of perforations. Inside, a classic white-cube exhibition space leads up to a large office the gallery plans to share with other creatives, as a kind of hub. And right on top, a terrace, looking out over the treetops of leafy Jardins.
The gallery’s first show in its new home featured the delicate work, all wry pencil drawings and tiny sculptures, of the artist Nazareno. Other names on the roster include Alexandre Brandão, whose installations have a cerebral quality that detracts nothing from their beauty.
