Because worth recognize and enact the criollo artistic talent, Digital T-Rex brings this trip for the eighth version of the Luis Caballero Prize , where eight different artists give us a tour of history, memory and reinterpretation eight places more iconic and representative of Bogotá Free until next November 15 !.
This story is the mountain route , the first four stops of this award are in the center of the capital.
Tearing off by the Bogotá Museum of Modern Art -MAMBo- with the work ‘ towards a common place ‘ John Mejia tells us about the sinking and sinking as a common place where we all begins this year the Luis Caballero Prize , one of the most important awards for contemporary artists from Colombia .
Making a direct relationship with the work place and in all other spaces , the main feature of prize delivery bag 15 million for work and 35 million for first place ; ‘ It was a common place ‘ it invites us to visit this museum for some years asking for help to stay afloat in a country where art has historically gone unnoticed.
Drawing, Installation and Perfomance are the means used by the artist in the basement of the place, which could well be the seabed posed Mejia and where among other things , seek treasures that feed our history.
After the collapse arrived at the Bogota Archive to discover the work of Ana Isabel Millán caleña : ‘ Cold in Colombia ‘ . Who worried about the repatriation of our treasures , remakes one colombo – German film legally sequestered in the Bavarian country : Kalt in Kolumbien .
And with some actors who are his friends this caleña makes us count through the low-budget film that worked both in his homeland with so recognized as Andres Caicedo , Carlos Mayolo and Luis Ospina names.
And with his combo again we bring this work to collation that was recorded in 1985 , and subsequently disappear until this edition of Luis Caballero, which will take place until 15 November.
We passed the file and the next stop is the Quinta de Bolivar ‘ Bolivarian Ornithology , the fable of the birds ‘ . That place where he lived his last 10 years before his death in Sta . Marta Simon Bolivar and where the artist Alberto Baraya placed the most important species of birds that have come our country since times of Great Colombia .
Concerned about the environmental destruction the artist Baraya this time creates a clash between two of the most important exhibitions that we have in Colombia ; the Quinta de Bolivar for his political and social value to the country and the birds that gave the National History Museum and La Salle for its environmental importance .
Where we can find one of the three condors desiccated there in Bogota, and that we face the fable to which Baraya refers where about 60 dead birds are taking the home of the Liberator, and gradually are transformed into characters the history of the Spanish Viceroyalty Liberation .
