Contemporary Art Colombia

Colombia’s contemporary art scene – one of the most vibrant in Latin America – nevertheless remains relatively undocumented outside that country. With profiles of 90 key players and four critical essays, Contemporary Art Colombia captures the renewed dynamism of the Colombian art world.

Contemporary Art Colombia features the key figures, museums and spaces so integral to the booming Colombian art scene, including public institutions such as the Museo del Banco de la República in Bogotá and the Medellín Museo de Arte Moderno; private initiatives such as Art Fair ArtBo; private institutions such as Flora and Fundación Misol; commercial galleries such as Bogotá-based Casas Riegner and Instituto de Visión; artists such as Doris Salcedo, Carlos Motta, Edinson Quiñones, and Oscar Muñoz; and well-established figures like Celia de Birbragher, the founder and editor of Latin America’s leading art magazine, ArtNexus.

Hossein Amirsadeghi is a writer, publisher and editor, and the driving force behind many books, including Sanctuary, Art Studio America, Nordic Contemporary, and Contemporary Art Mexico.
Catherine Petitgas was executive editor of Contemporary Art Brazil and Contemporary Art Mexico.
