Ch.ACO inserts itself solidly into the visual arts scene, with its undeniable international profile and being an essential link in the national art chain as a dynamic platform that generates dialogues and discussions among the local public, artists and international guests.
In this edition, which takes place at Centro Cultural Estación Mapocho, 17 national and 13 international galleries participate, and an attendance of more than 50,000 people is achieved.
Also present at the fair are collections Finlandia, TransparentArte and FAVA, all three fostered by Ch.ACO through public calls, in association with different companies and institutions.
