With the participation of 70 galleries from 20 countries, it takes place this week in the Colombian capital, between the 25th and 28th of October, the 14tha edition of ARTBO (Art Fair of Bogotá). The fair, which has established itself as one of the most important in Latin America, is the main event in a week that moves the city's art scene.

In addition to ARTBO, the Milhão and Barcu fairs, the recently launched Espacio Odeón Intensivo project and a series of exhibitions in large institutions (such as the Museum of Art of the University of Colombia), independent spaces (such as FLORA ars+natura) and art galleries.

The Brazilian houses participating in the 14a edition of ARTBO are the galleries Eduardo Fernandes, Luisa Strina, Portas Vilaseca and Vermelho, in the main section, and Superfície, in the section dedicated to young galleries. In the area dedicated to individual projects by artists, Carla Chaim, from São Paulo, for Galeria Raquel Arnaud, and Emmanuel Nassar, from Pará, for the Portuguese gallery Kubikgallery, participate.

ARTBO, held since 2004 and directed by María Paz Gaviria, was an important driver not only of the art market, but also of the Colombian art scene, in a country that was still dealing intensely with the trauma of conflicts with guerrillas and drug trafficking. In recent years, several galleries and spaces dedicated to the visual arts have proliferated not only in Bogotá, but also in cities such as Medellín and Cali.
