Throughout these years, ARTBO Fair has become the central axis of Colombian art circuit in terms of commercialization and internationalization, providing spaces for networking and encouraging business between collectors, art enthusiasts and gallery owners. It has also bet on the democratization and circulation of the arts.

In its nineteenth edition, the fair brings together 113 spaces, including galleries, museums, institutions, design studios and publishing projects, with more than 300 artists on display, which make up a large multidisciplinary exhibition articulated in different sections.

Under the curatorship of Claudia Segura (Curator of Exhibitions and Collection, Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona—MACBA, Spain), Proyectos section presents How do woodlands think? which questions anthropocentrism and reflects on other forms of life, beyond the human ones: the activity of nature, its imaginaries, its symbolic and spiritual value.

Likewise, Referentes, a space dedicated to historical works that have changed paradigms, presents the curated work of Julieta González (curator and researcher, Venezuela) titled Third nature, which shifts away from the historical vision to propose one where the telluric and the vegetal work as parameters to delve into the ecosystems shared and intervened by multiple species through works that question from their practices the notions of geography, botany, anthropology and history. For its part, Sitio, a section that seeks to promote the collecting of large-scale works, will take over the architecture of Agora with eight projects by artists François Bucher, Mapa Teatro, Nadín Ospina, Ernestro Restrepo, Daniel Nyström, Jaime Miranda-Bambarén, Los Carpinteros and Edelmira Boller.

Artecámara, the most representative young art show in the country, is curated by Equipo TRansHisTor(ia) with the title Planetary movements, possible worlds, which brings together 26 artists, three collectives and three special participations that confront the dialectics of the utopias that artistic projects imply in the social and collective spheres. Conversaciones, on the other hand, offers a space for learning and discussion on contemporary art where the recent transformation of the art scene is explored from different perspectives. Finally, Cain Press proposes the curatorship Edible material for Libro de Artista, the meeting of independent publishers that explore the book as an artistic object; on this occasion it brings together 50 projects that examine how the artist’s book is framed in the era of digital culture.

The Fair will also offer two new spaces designed to continue expanding the networks of the visual arts. On the one hand, Diseño, under the curatorship of Liliana Andrade (architect, designer and museographer, Colombia), gives place to eight projects that explore the languages of contemporary art in relation to design and history; on the other hand, Encuentros, in charge of Benedicta Badía (collector and member of the Acquisitions Committee of the Latin American Circle of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum) in its first edition, seeks to generate spaces for dialogue to strengthen ties between Colombian art actors and members of the international scene, in addition to working collaboratively to install best practices.
