In 2001, Galeria Cristina Guerra was set up in Lisbon’s Estrela neighbourhood. The gallery got its name after its owner, Cristina Guerra. Cristina’s aim is to promote Portuguese artists on the international market, which she does by taking part in fairs such as ARCO, Art Basel, Art Basel Miami Beach, FIAC and Zona Maco (Mexico)
At the same time, she loves to bring famous foreign names to her gallery and show Portugal what good contemporary art is. Cristina supports the conceptual work of over 20 artists and encourages them to be original and get out of the comfort zone. Some of them are Filipa César, João Onofre, Rui Toscano and Yonamine.
