Luisa Strina started as a marchant in 1970 and opened her gallery in 1974. In 2010, she spent strengthened the ties between the Brazilian artistic environment and its Latin American counterpart. In 2006, only two Latin American artists from outside Brazil were represented: the Cuban Carlos Garaicoa and the Argentine Jorge Macchi; by 2012, the gallery already had 15 Latin American names in its cast. The perception that there was room to work with Contemporary Art from Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Costa Rica, et al in São Paulo, coincided with a rising interest from a generation of artists to explore other paths in contemporary production.
