Largo das Artes

Established in a XIX century building in Rio de Janeiro’s historical city centre, Largo das Artes has been the home of many artistic and cultural projects since 2008.

In January 2013, the space was turned into an independent contemporary art centre with a gallery, courses, studios and a residency programme, which has hosted approximately 60 artists from over 15 countries. This project was conceived by Despina, which is also responsible for its management.
