Conversations

Convinced that art and culture play a fundamental role in social transformations, Ch.ACO feels more committed than ever to developing projects that provide questions and answers, in spaces for dialogue around contingent themes.

Every year, the Conversatorios program has a different curatorial approach and brings together relevant national and international guests - curators, artists, historians, managers of cultural institutions, art agents and specialists in various fields - in a space for learning and discussion constructive-creative, open to the public attending the fair.

OPEN Ch.ACO - 2020

This year, more than ever, the Open Ch.ACO Conversations have as their main focus to be a platform for visibility and interaction for the agents participating in this unique edition

and virtual of the fair.

In this sense, it is proposed to the public, to live a virtual experience similar to the face-to-face fair, revealing all the proposals of Ch.ACO-11 through the artists, collectors, curators, galleries and institutions present at the fair.

In turn, it seeks to account for and share important instances that are active in the scene

of the visual arts of Chile in the context of a pandemic, offering a platform to give them

to know.
