Artists and Artworks:

Ugo Rondinone:

A prominent Swiss visual artist known for exhibiting installations in museums and art galleries, as well as public squares and parks worldwide.

His work explores the ephemeral nature of human existence and the connection with nature, characterized at first glance by his palette of strong and striking colors. These intense colors can create a striking contrast and contribute to the creation of emotional atmospheres in his pieces.

Many of his installations are monumental in scale and have the ability to transform the exhibition space. These installations often actively involve the spectator, creating an immersive experience.

Olga de Amaral:

Olga de Amaral’s artworks embody a reflection of the very history of art itself. Her art serves as an invaluable lens through which to comprehend the evolution of Latin American culture and the significance of rendering these historical processes relevant in our modern era.

She breathes life into materials, transforming them into pieces that bridge the realms of pre- Hispanic heritage and colonial art, sparking a dialogue within the contemporary. In doing so, she transmutes our past into our present.

Amaral’s artistic experimentation cultivates a unique language where unconventional techniques and materials act as custodians of the enigmatic and enduring questions that carry the essence of art itself.

David Manzur:

David Manzur’s ladies capture the poetic and expressive essence of the renowned Colombian painter. Through his distinctive style, Manzur breathes life into these elegant women, creating compositions that reveal a blend of emotions and symbolism. His works, marked by technical mastery and chromatic richness, become visual metaphors of beauty, introspection, and spiritual connection. Each of Manzur’s ladies is a window to a lyrical universe, where the fusion of forms and colors reveals the depth of his artistic vision that touches on the most iconic eras in the history of art.

In addition to these artists, Fernando Botero, Oswaldo Guayasamín, Reynier Ferrer, Vik Muniz, Óscar Murillo, Wifredo Lam, Ariel Cabrera, Julio Larraz, and many more will be present.
