Em 2011, a curadora e artista Maria Montero fundou o Phosphorus. Localizado na primeira rua da cidade de São Paulo, em um casarão histórico, foi um espaço voltado à produção artística experimental e de residentes. Em 2014, após um programa contínuo de exposições e mais de vinte residências, o Phosphorus esgotou todos as possibilidades de financiamento alternativo e transformou-se na Sé. Foi o passo natural e orgânico do projeto inicial. Hoje, a galeria representa 13 artistas brasileiros, todos com sólida trajetória institucional ou acadêmica, e atua em colaboração e parceria, privilegiando o acompanhamento crítico e a realização de projetos institucionais. E desenvolve também um programa com eventos ligados à música, experiências gastronômicas, performances, festas e leituras.

Located on the first street in the city of São Paulo, in a historic mansion, it was a space dedicated to experimental and resident artistic production. In 2014, after a continuous program of exhibitions and more than twenty residences, Phosphorus exhausted all possibilities of alternative financing and became the Sé. It was the natural and organic step of the initial project. Today, the gallery represents 13 Brazilian artists, all with a solid institutional or academic trajectory, and works in collaboration and partnership, privileging critical monitoring and the realization of institutional projects. It also develops a program with events related to music, gastronomic experiences, performances, parties and readings.
In 2011 artist and curator Maria Montero founded Phosphorus. Located in a historical context, at the very first street of the city of São Paulo, it was a space dedicated to artistic experimentation and residencies.
In 2014, after a continuous program of exhibitions and over twenty residencies, Montero founded Sé gallery in the same building. After 6 years in São Paulo downtown, Sé changed its headquarters to house 2 of Flávio de Carvalho’s modernist village at Jardins neighborhood.
Sé represents 19 Brazilian artists, with a solid institutional or academic path, most of them began their dialogue with the art market through the gallery.
Sé came to life in a moment of revision of the contemporary art modus operandi. We work in collaboration and partnership with the represented artists, privileging the critical accompaniment and the realization of institutional projects. We seek to form new audiences for artists and works that express a conceptual and research-based vision of contemporary art.
Sé has participated in important art fairs like Arco Madrid and LISTE Basel.
