ARTBO | Fair has established itself as one of the most important fairs in Latin America, with the participation of around 70 established and emerging galleries from all over the world.

The online application platform will be open until Friday, April 3. For further information, please contact Felipe Villada, Head of Relations, or Daniela Cortés, in charge of Gallery Relations.

ARTBO | Fair Sections

ARTBO | Fair features 4 commercial sections for galleries:

Galleries from all over the world are chosen by the Selection Committee to participate in this section. The fair’s selection is a balanced mix of established, emerging and cutting-edge galleries that participate in the 21m² category.

Contemporary artists with the commercial representation of a gallery are selected and invited by a curator to present a special project.

This curated section focuses on historical works that shifted paradigms and shaped art history, thus becoming referents for contemporary artists. The pieces exhibited in this museographic exhibition belong to the archives of galleries participating in the Principal and Proyectos sections.

Galleries in the Principal section have the possibility of nominating sculptures, installations, performances and projects whose nature require a different space from the traditional booth.

While its non-commercial sections include: Artecámara, an exhibition featuring the work of emerging Colombian artists with no commercial representation; Foro, a series of talks centered on the different dynamics of contemporary art; and Libro de artista, which brings together different publishers working with books as an artistic medium.
