What’s next: an overview of the art world in 2024

After the famous “end of year lists”, which remember and celebrate the most relevant artistic productions of the last twelve months, it is time to talk about the 2024 programming. What will be the possible trends in the art world and what can be done expect from museums and galleries this year?

In such a large and diverse country, it is difficult to list the main themes chosen by artists and curators to be worked on over the next few months. However, the annual agendas already released by large institutions give some clues as to what will be discussed and proposed in 2024.

São Paulo, the great hub

In the city of São Paulo, the so-called “capital of culture”, a series of events should influence the national and international circuit of the art world.

In the Pinacoteca complex – formed by Pina Luz, Pina Contemporânea and Pina Estação -, important retrospective and panoramic exhibitions will be presented. In March, “Lygia Clark: Project for a planet”, will bring together works from 1950 to 1980 by one of the most iconic names in contemporary Brazilian art. Still in March, “Gervane de Paula: how good it is to live in Mato Grosso” will escape the Rio-São Paulo axis to show socio-political issues in the country’s Center West. From May onwards, the Chilean Cecilia Vicuna will receive an unprecedented solo exhibition, completing the triad of Latin American artists at the museum, along with “Marta Minujín: ao vivo” (2023).
