Known for its beach culture and body-conscious aesthetics, Rio de Janeiro tends to be typified by sun, sea and sex appeal, yet just under the surface lies an underground art scene populated by a complex network of incredible artists. To get to know this culture-rich side of Rio, the independent art galleries are a good place to start.
Despina manages projects from Largo das Artes, a cultural and artistic space in Rio’s centro. Some of the projects form a residency programme that allows space for artists to explore their creativity. The results are contemporary pieces of art that represent collaboration of artists from all over the world. Within its space, resident artists can exhibit their works, increasing their visibility as well as contributing to the development of the local art scene.
