  • Several questions for Nara Roesler

    Why did you open the gallery?
    I opened Galeria Nara Roesler almost 40 years ago in order to connect the public of the Northeast of Brazil to great artists that I identified in my formative years.

    What is the most challenging part of running a gallery?
    I believe that the greatest challenge of running a gallery that now has 43 artists in its roster is maintaining each and everyone connected to their essence and selling the artists' works for what they truly are, avoiding trends that seem flashy, but in reality are transient and market-based.

    What is the funniest thing that happened to you at an art fair/in your gallery?
    There was this one time where I needed to deliver a huge public sculpture to São Paulo from Recife in the North. There was a flood and the work could not be delivered via truck. I needed to pay for a license for a ship for the delivery, but I was so nervous that I signed a check using tons instead of reais!
