Sicardi | Ayers | Bacino is pleased to announce the participation of gallery artists María Fernanda Cardoso [b. 1963, Colombia] and Reynier Leyva Novo [b. 1983, Cuba] in the Referentes section of ARTBO in Bogotá, Colombia. For the 16th edition, ARTBO | Fair will present more than 50 consolidated, emerging, and cutting-edge galleries, chosen by the Selection Committee, as well as a renowned curatorial team leading different sections: Referentes, Foro, Artecámara, Proyectos, Libro de Artista and Articularte.
Ante América, dos tiempos (Two-stage Ante América)
The section, that presents historical works that broke paradigms in the history of art, seeks to rescue Ante América, a collective exhibition curated in 1992 by Gerardo Mosquera, Carolina Ponce de León and Rachel Weiss, and organized by the Biblioteca Luis Ángel Arango of the Banco de la República. Gabriela Rangel, writer, researcher, and curator of this component of ARTBO | Fair proposes to activate the memory of this exhibition in order to put it in correspondence —as a palimpsest— with works by contemporary artists from the hemisphere, placing Bogotá as the center of this story, thirty years after the commemoration of the Fifth Centenary of the Discovery of America.
