Thiago Granai (Brasilia, 1997) is a visual artist and independent curator resident at GUAVA. At GUAVA, he proposes, in collaboration with the online gallery, close approximations with other artists, which are accomplished in the research and production of exhibition projects. Last year he curated the exhibition Translation at GUAVA and participated in the exhibition The Invention of Silence (online), curated by Malu Serafm, and in the WebResidency at OLHÃO space, from Sao Paulo.


GUAVA is an online art gallery by Mariana Destro focused on exploring boundaries and concepts. It was conceived in 2019 as a platform for curating and spreading contemporary imagery. We present exhibitions and projects made especially for the internet. We seek fresh fertile ground for mapping a new topography of contemporary art. Through GUAVA we aim to build closer dialogue between artistic practice and the broader fields of contemporary society, never letting go of notions of the ephemeral character of a world in constant change.


deCurators is a micro-curatorial space focused on public education, experimentation, and contemporary art. Created in March 2014 by Gisel Carriconde Azevedo, it is a non-commercial contemporary art space managed by artists, conceived as a vitrine for curatorial exercises. The exhibitions are organized in curatorial cycles based on a theme or proposition, which works as a leitmotif around which several cultural actions are carried out.
