See Galapagos through the eyes of 8 artists
Within the framework of the new edition of the Latin American Roaming Art, this year the main topic is Galapagos. LARA Project has received an important international interest and respect from the Latin American contemporary art community. Every new edition invites eight artists to travel to an specific place, and this year the project is focused on the Enchanted Islands.
The last three editions of the artistic project were about the city of Honda in Colombia, Ollantaytambo in Peru and Oaxaca in Mexico. In this fourth edition, the eight artists travelled to the Archipelago last March and stayed there for two weeks. Contemporary Art has not given much attention to these Islands until now. Galapagos Islands, considered World Heritage for their extraordinary biodiversity, are the new scenario for these artists to be inspired. The exhibition is a particular mix of nature and art. So it is highly recommended to art lovers and photography lovers.
Their inspirations results can be seen in their different pieces of art. Each one with its own characteristics, very different to each other, combining sculpture, photography and paintings. It is a new way to experience the Islands: though the eyes of some of the best artists of Latin America.
The exhibition will be held in the Contemporary Art Center of Quito and it will end up at 13th of November. The eight artists of this year are: Arjona, Azcárate, Balseca, Cardoso, Duville, Ribadeneira, Solminihac and Guillén.
