On Wednesday, September 6th, Carlos Junqueira and Luciana Brito celebrated the opening of “Ruptura” – an in-depth exhibition of work by the São Paulo-based Grupo Ruptura.
Grupo Ruptura founded the Brazilian concrete art movement, which espoused the creation of universally apprehensible compositions through the use of color and geometry in sync with a modernizing society.
Espasso Annex / Luciana Brito NY Project, is an original collaboration between Carlos Junqueira and Luciana Brito aiming to explore the convergence of design and art through a Brazilian perspective.
The exhibition will be on view from September 6 – November 6, 2017 at ESPASSO Annex/ Luciana Brito NY Project at 186 Franklin Street in TriBeCa.
Espasso Annex, the latest venture from Espasso founder Carlos Junqueira, is a gallery dedicated to showcasing vintage and limited edition Brazilian furniture. In addition, the Annex has forged a collaboration with Sao Paulo’s Luciana Brito Galeria – one of the leading art galleries in Brazil. As part of Luciana Brito’s New York Project, three curated exhibitions will be presented throughout the next twelve months.
Espasso Annex was created as a compliment to nearby Espasso, to meet the growing demand of its customers for vintage and rare furniture by its roster of acclaimed Brazilian designers. The new location will allow the original Espasso, and its locations in Los Angeles, Miami and London, to expand upon its exclusive collection of contemporary designers, including re-edition furniture and accessories.
