Nuno Centeno first opened his space as a project gallery for local artists in a Porto townhouse in 2007, moving to a larger space in 2009, with the new name Galeria Nuno Centeno announced in 2011. In 2018, he expanded his presence in Porto with a new location in a historical building, which has 1,000 square metres of display space. The gallery represents both established and emerging artists, including Secundino Hernández, Gabriel Lima, Dan Rees, Daniel Steegmann Mangrané, Merlin Carpenter and Mauro Cerqueira, and has a particular focus on Latin American art. Centeno has participated in many of the major international art fairs including Frieze London and New York, Art Basel Miami Beach, Independent, Artissima, Art Brussels, Zona Maco, Liste, and ARCOmadrid and ARCOlisboa, for which he is on the selection committee.
