It's one of the first major international galleries to arrive in São Paulo – but we're wagering it won't be the last. Opened in December 2012, London's White Cube gallery kicked off with a solo show by one of its Brit Art stars, Tracey Emin (read our interview with the artist, here). It also represents Antony Gormley, love-him-or-hate-him art bad boy Damien Hirst, and a huge list of major international talent, some of whom are already jockeying for a show in SP. But as well as bringing artists from its current roster to show in SP, the gallery will be showing Brazilian artists at its new, immense London space in Bermondsey, and possibly even in its Hong Kong branch. Jac Leirner and Marcius Galan are two of the first Brazilian artists to benefit from the arrangement, with shows planned in London for 2013.
