Chicken or Pasta – 9th edition of the Artists without a Gallery Salon

The 9th edition of the Artists without a Gallery Salon (Salão dos Artistas Sem Galeria), promoted by the Arts Guide publisher and portal Mapa das Artes, will be held from 15/01/2018 (Sancovsky Gallery) and 16/01/2018 (Zipper Gallery). Both exhibitions will take place simultaneously and present works by the 10 artists chosen for this year´s show.

The following artists will take part in the 9th edition of the Salon: Angela Od (RJ), Caio Pacela (SP/RJ), Renata Pelegrini (SP), Mercedes Lachmann (RJ), João GG (RS/SP), João Galera (PR/SP), David Almeida (DF/SP), Élcio Miazaki (SP), Sonia Dias (SP) and Yoko Nishio (RJ). The artists were chosen by a jury consisting of Fernanda Resstom (Central Gallery), Nathalia Lavigne (independent curator) and Renata Castro e Silva (Carbono Gallery). The 10 artists will take part in two simultaneous showings in São Paulo, at the Sancovsky and Zipper galleries, between 15/1 and 24/2, and at the Orlando Lemos Art Gallery, in Nova Lima (MG), between 10/3 and 20/4/18.

The exhibition of the chosen artists brings together works in different techniques and formats, such as paintings, sculptures, drawings, collage and photographs.

The 9th edition received 154 submissions from 11 Brazilian states plus the Federal District. São Paulo featured 87 artists while Rio de Janeiro had 33, followed by Minas Gerais (11), Paraná (six), the Federal District (five), Rio Grande do Sul (four), Goiás (two) and Santa Catarina, Espírito Santo, Bahia, Ceará and Maranhão (one each).

The aim of the Artists without a Gallery Salon is to assess, show, document and publicize the production of visual artists who have no verbal or formal contracts (representation) with any art gallery in São Paulo city. The Salon traditionally opens the arts calendar in São Paulo and is an entry point to the art world for the artists selected.


The Mapa das Artes guide was created by journalist Celso Fioravante in 2002 and is the most comprehensive of its kind in São Paulo. The folder, which appears every two months and is free of charge, presents all the programs of the museums, galleries and areas dedicated to the visual arts, as well as services. The Mapa das Artes site (www.mapadasartes.com.br) is a portal that covers the whole of Brazil and presents the programs and services of museums from all states. It has a number of sections, including those dedicated to the arts salons, with dates and details on public notices on how artists can submit their works. The Shorts section presents articles and a service on developments, events and matters of interest to devotees of the visual arts. It also has columns entitled Supernova, containing the most updated information, and News, which presents a selection of articles on the visual arts from the world’s main publications. The Mapa das Artes guide´s wide-ranging coverage has made it an essential item in the expansion of the Brazilian arts circuit.
