2018 - Ch.ACO changes
With 10 years as part of the global circuit of art fairs, Ch.ACO manages to strengthen and to put local contemporary art on the international map. The fair allows national galleries, curators, artists and professionals to connect with their peers from around the world, developing this way, a market that allows every agent to find their own place.
This edition, which has the largest number of registered galleries in its history, 16 national and 25 international galleries, takes place on an under construction building in the commune of Vitacura.
The Focus section, by curator Cecilia Fajardo-HIll, has as a theme to develop dialogue and context, and it has 12 galleries.
The Planta section, in charge of Carolina Castro and Matías Allende, has 10 galleries from Chile and other countries like Argentina, Peru, Ecuador and Mexico, with the idea of showing that it is possible to create a management model through dialogue with the methodologies of each space along Latin America.
This year's discussion panel program is organized by the FAVA Foundation and its main focus is to become an exposure and interaction platform for participating artists in this edition. In this occasion, Andrés Marroquin, Cecilia Vicuña, Cher Knight, Christian Viveros-Faune, Claudia Hakim, Cristian Salinas, Enrique Ramírez, Gilbert Vicario, Isabel García Pérez de Arce, Janet Toro, Pablo León de la Barra, Sebastián Calfuqueo y Voluspa Jarpa, among others are invited.
