CAMILA BOTERO NOMINATED IN ARTBO FOR THE EFG LATIN AMERICA ART AWARD
The nominated work is Volcán I, III, II from 2019. It arises from a recurring question about the slow processes of change that are currently happening, these that have an intrinsic force and that transform everything around them. Camila Botero was born in Medellín in 1976, where she works and lives.
The volcanoes and their eruptions also allow the artist to address all this accumulated tension and retained energy, which has no other option but to explode and release all their inner force.
The work was selected as a digital initiative at the ARTBO fair with the collaboration of Jaime Cerón, independent critic and curator, together with Celia Sredni de Birbragher, Director and Editor of ArtNexus.
The EFG Latin America Art Award, now in its 10th year, was created to support the work of Latin American artists whose work is pre-selected through a jury at contemporary art fairs in Latin America throughout the year.
This year the fairs where the preselection was made were: SP Arte, São Paulo; Art Lima and PArC, Lima; arteBA, Buenos Aires; Open Ch.ACO, Santiago de Chile and ArtBo, Bogotá.
The award aims to promote the continent's visual arts production and regional fairs among collectors around the world, with the strategic development of Liaisons.
As in previous years, once the nominees have been selected at the participating Latin American art fairs, the acquisition by EFG Capital will be selected and announced in a Zoom within Pinta Miami. The complete collection of the EFG Latin America Art Award is on permanent display at EFG Capital's Miami offices.
