A jury that included Colombian artists and curators Mario Opazo, Carlos Uribe, and Brazilian curator Rodrigo Moura selected the eight works that will participate in the Seventh Edition of the Luis Caballero Award. This contest, which has become emblematic of contemporary art in Colombia, will showcase eight interventions in various places of the city of BogotГЎ.

The District Institute of Arts –IDARTES–, as part of the Secretary of Culture, Recreation and Sports, through the Visual Arts Management, invited longstanding and growing visual artists to submit installation or intervention projects designed for a specific space in one of the locations suggested by the entity, or in a place proposed by the artist. The eight selected artists will present their interventions, simultaneously, from October 5 to November 2. One of these nominated proposals will be granted the VII Luis Caballero Award.

The eight artworks will be exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art of BogotГЎ, the National Theatre House, the Santa Clara Museum, the Santa Fe Gallery, the Leopoldo Rother Museum of Architecture at the National University of Colombia, the Archive of Bogota, the Las Cruces District Market, and the Center for Contemporary Creation Textura.

The artists who will show their interventions in these spaces are Sergio Giraldo, JosГ© Alejandro Restrepo, Carlos Castro, MarГ­a Adelaida LГіpez, Fredy Alzate, Manuel Quintero Aranguren, Consuelo GГіmez, and Mariana Varela. All of the artists have worked over a year in their insitu projects that highlight different elements which contribute to new and diverse ways of looking and understanding the complexities of the city.В 

The Path of Caballero
Visitors and groups of people staying in BogotГЎ during October will have two different ways to visit the eight artworks: the Cerros Orientales Path and the Sabana Path. We will use riddles and activities with the purpose of bringing the non-specialized public closer to visual arts. The District Institute of Arts will provide transportation as a free service.

The Luis Caballero Award has a national scope and it is aimed at artists with at least a ten-year trajectory. It was created in 1996 with the intention of stimulating quality projects in the artistic scene, challenging artists to respond to the particular architecture of the exhibition space, and supporting their artistic production with a creation grant. The Award´s name pays homage to Luis Caballero (1943–1995), who represented in his lifetime the mid-generation that consolidated a place in the Colombian artistic field.
