  • About the Gallery
  • Address
Jacques Ardies Gallery is located at Vila Mariana, nearby Ibirapuera Park, in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil and occupies an early 19th century house completely renovated. The gallery, which began to organize exhibitions in August 1979, has worked enthusiastically to promote Brazilian Naive Art. Over those 42 years, many solo and collective exhibitions were held not only at the gallery but also in national and international museums such as MAC (Campinas, Brazil), The Modern Art Museum (Goiânia, Brazil), The Art Space 4 (Paris, France), The Cultural Center of the IMF Visitors Bureau (Washington, USA) Jacqueline Bricard Gallery (Lourmarin, France), The Pro Art Kasper Gallery (Morges, Switzerland), Gina Gallery (Tel-Aviv, Israel) and The Musée International d´Art Naïf Anatole Jakovsky (Nice, France). In 1998, Jacques Ardies launched the book “Naive Art in Brazil” in collaboration with art critic Edson Geraldo de Andrade. In 2003, with the help of art critic Jorje Anthonio e Silva, he continued his drive by highlighting the work of one of the most authentic naïve art painters, Ivonaldo, by publishing a book about his life and art. At the end of 2014, Ardies published a second book titled “Naïve Art in Brazil II” offering a view of the historical movement of Naïve Art and also features more recent painters.
