Mendes Wood DM was founded in 2010 by partners Felipe Dmab, Matthew Wood and Pedro Mendes with the intent to exhibit international and Brazilian artists in a context conducive to critical dialogue and cross-pollination. Central to the gallery’s program is a concern for regional difference and individuation while fostering cosmopolitanism and collaboration. Inspired by a belief that artistic practices broaden the scope of human agency and have the power to both touch and change the world, Mendes Wood DM cultivates a program premised on conceptualism, political resistance and intellectual rigor.

In 2017, Mendes Wood DM inaugurated its first North American exhibition space in New York with a series of two-person shows juxtaposing historical and contemporary material; including artists such as Lucas Arruda and On Kawara, Sonia Gomes and A.R. Penck. 

In the same year, Mendes Wood DM expanded its European presence with a new gallery in Brussels founded in partnership with longtime friend and collaborator Carolyn Drake Kandiyoti. Located in a historic townhouse, the space lends itself to ambitious curatorial projects and monographic exhibitions, as well as welcoming artists and curators in residence. The residency is integral to the gallery project to establish a place for the active exchange, creation and reformulation of varying artistic narratives.
