About the gallery:
Gravura Brasileira gallery was founded in 1998 by Alberto Fuks and Eduardo Besen out of their project to show modern and contemporary engraving art. The gallery collection features now over 3,000 works by artists from different countries, and it is the only place dedicated solely to print art, in Brazil.

Along its 10 years of existence Gravura Brasileira has become a center of reference, because it organizes national and international exhibitions for both young and renowned artists, as well as talks and the publication of artist books and engraving albums. The gallery welcomes artists, visitors, art dealers and curators from all around the world, and maintains exchange programs with Brazilian and foreign studios and institutions. It also holds participation in international art fairs and exhibitions.

In September 2006, a one-night portfolio presentation was held at Goloborotko´s Studio.  More than 100 prints by 30 Brazilian artists were presented to artists, curators and collectors. Donna Moran, director of Pratt Institute saw the exhibition and invited curator Eduardo Besen to organize a show at one of Pratt’s galleries in 2007. In 2008, an exhibition with American artists related to Pratt Institute will happen at Gravura Brasileira in Sao Paulo.

At that time, the same portfolio was presented to the curators of MOMA´s department of print and illustrated books.
