History and venues

Piero Atchugarry Gallery opened to the public in November 2013 with an exhibition on Post-War Italian art. By January 2014 the gallery moved to a large exhibition space in Garzón, Uruguay.[1] The Piero Atchugarry Sculpture Park, a 22 hectares stretch of land surrounding the gallery, opened simultaneously in 2013. Displaying works by international artists that follow the gallery’s curatorial approach, the park allows visitors to have a fully integrated experience of art and nature.

Acting as its own institution, with the support of the Fundacion Pablo Atchugarry|Fundación Pablo Atchugarry, the Garzón Sculpture Park offers an annual exhibition related to the gallery’s collection, which includes work by artists Luca Benites, Humberto Cazorla, Daniel Papaleo, Octavio Podestá, Diego Santurio, Peter Schwickerath, Alan Sonfist, Verónica Vázquez, Ignacio Iturria, Elba Bairon, Lorena Guillen Vaschetti and Eduardo Basualdo. The Garzón Sculpture Park is free and open to the public.[2]

In December 2018, Piero Atchugarry expanded his program to North America with a second location in Miami, USA, a 9000 square feet warehouse on 5520 NE 4th Avenue in the Miami Design District neighbourhood.[3]


Piero Atchugarry Gallery has developed a specific program called PA Takeover, with the aim of expanding its activity outside the gallery walls, engaging new audiences and communities.

PA Takeover began in 2019 when the Piero Atchugarry Gallery held a solo exhibition by Túlio Pinto at the Fondamenta Sant'Apollonia in Venice during the 58th Biennale di Venezia.[4] The second PA Takeover, (t,x,y,z) was a satellite exhibition held in Miami’s Design District from May 25 to June 27, 2020.[5]

In 2013 the gallery started a program of residencies within the context of the Garzón Sculpture Park. Artists stay in the Garzón studio residence to develop a body of work, often including a Site-specific art|site-specific and permanent installation inspired by the Uruguayan landscape and its nature. Part of the program’s purpose is to educate the general public on the artistic process by converting the gallery into a temporary artist studio.[6][7]

Resident artists include: Raffaele Rossi, Daniel Papaleo, Humberto Cazorla, Octavio Podestá, Diego Santurio, Peter Schwickerath, Luca Benites, Veronica Vazquez and Tulio Pinto.[2]
