Galeria Zilda Fraletti

Zilda Fraletti

The Gallery – History

It is the first Contemporary Art Gallery in Curitiba, housing visual art works for 31 years. Within this period, it has held a great number of exhibitions of local, national and international artists, courses on contemporary art history and workshops. Apart from representing national and international acclaimed artists, it is keen to encourage emerging artists with consistent trajectories. Since the beginning, it has taken art outside the gallery space, promoting better interaction among artists, collectors and art lovers. It has participated in the Curitiba Biennial and accompanied artists in exhibitions abroad. The gallery has a collection of paintings, engravings, drawings, photographs, sculptures and videos.
Zilda Fraletti graduated in Psychology, but followed the path of arts. She lived in London, where she met several plastic artists and broadened her knowledge of art. She started her activities related to plastic arts in Curitiba - PR in 1984, by organizing groups of friends for the acquisition of works of art. In São Paulo, she opened an art office, between 1985 and 1990. In 1995, she opened the first contemporary art gallery in Curitiba, holding a great number of exhibitions of local, national and international artists, courses on contemporary art history and workshops. Highly focused on promoting high-quality contemporary art, she is always trying to encourage new talent and take art outside the art gallery, for better interaction between the public and artists, and has launched several books related to art. She participated in the 3rd Curitiba Photography Biennial (1996) and in the 20th International Curitiba Biennial (2013 and 2015). She has taken artists from her gallery to exhibitions abroad. She was the president of Núcleo Paranaense de Decoração, between December 2008 and June 2011. Currently, she writes a column on art for LUSH virtual magazine.
