ARTBO 2011 JUST AROUND THE CORNER
One of the most beautiful art fairs in Latin America is about to open its doors this October 20th in Bogota. What is important for me to go to Colombia, Bogota and see this show is to find the most interesting latin american emerging art, and I have to refer specifically to the Colombian artists.
Colombia has a group of very young but very comprised and studied artists with lot of talent and lot of concept which is the most interesting issue for me and for every contemporary curator or art collector.
This is an art fair which I recommend to every people who has a lot of sensibility to apraise art, but perhaps doesn’t have a big budget to start collecting art. It is an art fair that with just 7 years into today meets the best Latin American galleries like, Siccardi, Houston, Leon Tovar Ny, La Cometa, Bogota, Faria-Fabregas, Caracas, Roesler, Brasil, Enrique Guerrero, Mexico, Ascaso, Caracas amongst other.
It is also a good show to see good modern Latin American art and geometric abstraction.

The exhibitors and galleries reported sales expectations between 60 and 90 per cent, showing the commercial success of the fair.
