Registro visual de "Eco", la exposición de Fabián Ramos en Espacio Lanzallamas

Located in San Telmo neighborhood (637 Carlos Calvo street), the physical space of LANZALLAMAS is only the tip of the iceberg. What from the street seems to be an art gallery, is an ambitious self-management platform that proposes to introduce within the contemporary scene a network of relationships between artists, curators, residences, galleries and cultural institutions throughout Latin America. Created by Colombian curator Jen Zapata García and colombian visual artist Andrés Matías Pinilla, the space based in Buenos Aires (Argentina) and with a collaborative work-team in Bogotá (Colombia) seeks to decentralize from a collaborative work philosophy the art exhibition and distribution processes.
