In parallel, the work of three names will be presented that have Featured in the panorama of contemporary Colombian art. Camilo Villegas, Gabriela Sanchez and Juan Pablo Barceló, who were chosen because they share the courage to face being artists to reflect on the spirit, nature, memories and identity.
