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 15th edition in 2019, 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.
I have been represented in Colombia by LGM Galeria Bogota for a few years now and I am proud and thankful of this ongoing representation
