Bogota’s Art Scene Is “On Fire”

Nicholas Gill says: ‘As Colombia’s economy took off and its security began to stabilize more than a decade ago, Bogotá’s art scene blossomed. There are now more than 100 commercial galleries, most of them scattered around town in hub neighborhoods like San Felipe, La Macarena, and Quinta Camacho. The International Art Fair of Bogotá (ARTBO), which just ran its 13th edition in 2017, has become the Art Basel of Latin America, luring thousands of collectors and curators from all over the world. In other words, the art scene in Bogotá is alive and well. So well, it can be difficult to sort out. Luckily, we have Alejandra Sarria, chief curator at contemporary art space Espacio Odeón and former content and programming coordinator for ARTBO, to give us the rundown.’
