Irene Kopelman en su estudio. Ph: Ilya Rabinovich.

This July 6, MAMAC presents the individual exhibition of Irene Kopelman. She explores exceptional ecosystems, where she seeks to understand the mechanisms of the living world. Each biotope is a specific adventure, sensitive (feeling the landscape, its scale and movements); visual (entanglement and interdependence of the elements) and intellectual nature (discovering with the scientific teams in the field the tools of recording, measuring and understanding the life of these ecosystems and their role on a large scale).

By Valentina Gutiérrez Turbay.

(Part 2)

In the heart of San Felipe, a northern Bogotá neighbourhood in process of gentrification, there is a building where more than 20 artists from all over the world work, talk and coexist. Each one has his own workshop and does part of the activities of the curricular program, which includes encounters with curators, theorists, and leaders of indigenous communities among others. Founded by curator José Roca in 2016 The Flora School residence turned Bogotá into a meeting point for a diverse group of people interested in art. The reasons why artists choose this residence are many, although everyone agrees that the experience in Bogota represents an important moment in their career. Here are some of the 2018 residents:

 MORE EXCLUSIVE THAN EVER, THE TENTH EDITION OF THE CONTEMPORARY ART BIENNIAL OF BERLIN BEGAN

In the German capital - one of the epicenters of the international contemporary art scene - the tenth edition of the Contemporary Art Biennial of Berlin takes place since June 9. This year the Biennial, entitled We do not need another hero, has the participation of the South African Gabi Ngcobo as curator in chief.

The large number of Latin American artists participating in this edition of the Biennial is no small thing: compared to previous editions, the curatorial project for 2018 decided to reduce the cast of artists from one hundred and twenty artists who participated two years ago, to only forty six this year. Taking into account these figures, the prominence of Latin American and Caribbean art is a novelty, as some ten artists from these regions participate.
