Well, if you have been reading regularly you will know that not everyone has been happy with the way ArtBo 2007 was organized and in particular the way in which the galleries were chosen from those that applied.
Well, now a number of galleries excluded from ArtBo have decided to set up their own competing fair called “La Otra Feria” (The Other Fair) to coincide with the ArtBo fair dates. Way to go I say! Sometimes art can be thought to belong to critical snobs that think they can control the markets. Booo!!
No way! So a number of international and Colombian galleries will be showing their most respected artists works from the 18th – 22nd October in Bogota at the following address: Cr 4 #25B-50 (Barrio: La Macarena)
Entrey fee is COP $7.000 (USD $3.50) to visitors. If you are going to be in Bogota, take a few minutes of your time to support this effort – and hey if you really want to you can go to ArtBo too – tell me later how it went for you in the comments section!
