2015 - Ch.ACO for everyone
Ch.ACO is strongly inserted in the visual arts scene, with its undeniable international profile and being an essential link in the national art chain as a dynamic platform that creates dialogues and discussions between the local public, artists, and international guests.
In this edition, located in the Estación Mapocho Cultural Center, 17 national and 13 international galleries participated, and more than 50,000 people attended.
Also, the Finlandia, TransparentArte and FAVA collections are present in the fair, being the three promoted by Ch.ACO through an open call contest, in association with different companies and institutions.
The Pop-Up Spaces program is curated by the Chilean Carolina Castro and this year presents 9 spaces that seek to highlight the commercial management and business model of each one, thus helping to its insertion in the national and international market of contemporary art.
This year, the talk is developed by the FAVA foundation, being the main theme the artist as the protagonist of the meeting. The title of this year is “The artist is the one who establishes the truth in the world”, a phrase by Thomas Mann. Sebastián Preece, Pablo León de la Barra, Alberto Mayol, Voluspa Jarpa, Camilo Yáñez, Damián Ortega, Catherine Millet, Ernesto Ottone, and others are invited.
