Henrique FariaNew York
Henrique Faria opened as an art cabinet on Madison Avenue, New York, in 2001, specializing in Latin American geometric abstract artists such as modern masters Jesús Soto, Raúl Lozza, Gego, Mathias Goeritz, María Freire and Alejandro Otero as well as contemporary midcareer artists such as Luis Roldán, Emilia Azcárate and Jose Gabriel Fernández.
In 2007, the gallery decided to venture into the much lesser known world of conceptual practices from Latin America including artists Carlos Ginzburg, Marta Minujín, Guillermo Deisler and Horacio Zabala.
In 2009, we opened a new gallery with an exhibition by argentine artist, poet and filmmaker Leandro Katz. The next year, we doubled the size of the gallery which allowed us to continue exhibiting historical Latin American works from the 50's, 60's and the 70's in addition to a program of exhibitions by contemporary artists such as Emilio Chapela, Alessandro Balteo Yazbeck, Luis Molina-Pantin and Emilia Azcárate.
Since we opened the gallery, the demand for Latin American works has increased exponentially. Our client base has expanded from mainly Latin American collectors to international institutions, foundations and museums.
