With the new expography developed for the 18th edition, the ground floor will be occupied by the design, editorial and Radar SP–Arte sectors, in addition to the exhibition Art Nature: resignify to live. On the first floor, there will be galleries linked to the secondary market and, on the second, the galleries of the primary art market, both the most established and emerging, and institutional participations.
