ART AND CULTURE AT REQUÍNOA GARDENS (CHILE)
For the second year in a row, the Fundo Las Cabras gardens(Requínoa, Chile) will host the Thirteen Gardens Art Encounte. With the participation of more than forty Latin American artists, including Alejandro Quiroga, Paula de Solminihac, Álvaro Muñoz Fátima Pecci, Catalina Andonie, Ignacio Gumucio, Esperanza Rojo, Hugo Leonello, Antonia Daiber, Bastián Arce and Amanda Hansen, the meeting will begin in November 10 and will remain until the 18th of the same month.
With works by more than 40 artists, the exhibition will be organized by themed sections that will occupy the gardens and the different rooms of an eighteenth-century construction in Fundo Las Cabras, located in Requinoa, Chile. The encounter will feature a sculpture park, a hall dedicated to painting and a hall that will bring together works by young emerging artists.
"According to the historical project, the garden, unlike a forest, should not have the possibility of going out of control. It must be a fence. Everything must be regulated and delimited according to its enjoyment. Recognizing this aspect, 13 Gardens seeks to reverse the relationship of man and nature, tensioning the logics of domination and control associated with the landscape," explains Sofia Edwards, director of the initiative.
"13 Gardens" will feature the work of 46 emerging and established artists, most of whom created specific works for the occasion. Some of the artists who will be presenting their works are: Catalina Andonie, Ignacio Gumucio, Esperanza Rojo, Hugo Leonello, Antonia Daiber, Bastián Arce, Amanda Hansen, among many others.
The event, which will be free of charge and open to all public, will take place between Saturday the 10th and Sunday the 18th of November at Fundo Las Cabras in Requínoa and it will include guided tours, as well as a complete gastronomic offer and an editorial section.
