ABERTO is a platform for traveling exhibitions, held in unusual spaces – outside the traditional circuit of museums and galleries – that are open to the public during the entire event period.

The initiative works as a channel for the appreciation of the link between art, architecture and design, generating a dialogue between brazilian and international art in carefully selected spaces.

Each edition has a specific curatorial approach, defined collaboratively by a multidisciplinary artistic committee, formed by independent curators, collectors and gallery owners.



november 5th to december 4th, 2022

ABERTO’s first edition takes place in the only residential building designed by Oscar Niemeyer in the city of São Paulo. The exhibition is open from the 5th November to the 4th December 2022, and it coincides with the 10th anniversary of the architect’s death.

ABERTO/01 is co-curated by Filipe Assis, Kiki Mazzucchelli and Claudia Moreira Salles who is also responsible for the exhibition design, while Fundação Oscar Niemeyer is in charge of furnishing the house for the event. Participating galleries are: Fortes D’Aloia & Gabriel, Luisa Strina, Mendes Wood DM, Nara Roesler, and Sé, as well as DAN Galeria, Paulo Kuczynski, Pinakotheke, and Simões de Assis.

The show is split into five sections organised by theme, each of them installed in a different room, creating separate interactions between the artworks and Niemeyer’s architecture. The event also features the launch of an easel designed by Claudia Moreira Salles in partnership with ETEL.

Niemeyer House

Designed in the 1960s and built between 1970 and 1974 in the São Paulo neighbourhood of Alto de Pinheiros, the house is the ideal place to welcome the first edition of ABERTO and to celebrate the strong link between art and architecture. Its curves, which reproduce the shapes of the neighbouring square Praça Panamericana, combined with its ample glass panels – both typical of Niemeyer’s lyrical and sculptural aesthetics – seemingly connect the inside and outside spaces, giving rise to a fluid and poetic architecture.
