Casa Daros, a space in arenovated 1866 mansion, will house some of the works acquired the past 13 years by Zurich-based collector Ruth Schmidheiny. Working with German curator Hans-Michael Herzog, she combed Latin America at a time when the art world paid little attention to the region. The 1,200 pieces they bought came from 117 artists, most of them still alive and working.

Casa Daros is the latest new museum in Rio. This month saw the inauguration of the Rio Art Museum an two other museums, one dedicated to science and the other to sounds and images, are expected to open in the coming years.
