RADAR Curator

From the RADAR Section, the aim is to highlight a set of artistic productions that, through various languages and mediums, focus on the ability of art to reeducate our perception regarding our environment, sensitize us regarding the care of natural resources, and prioritize ancestral practices and knowledge in the face of the imminent crisis of habitability on our planet.

The NEXT Section renews its commitment to making visible the work of emerging artists through sustained collaboration with six galleries that represent the diverse artistic scenes of Latin America and its diaspora. These six spaces have been chosen for their drive to renew contemporary gallery practices, creatively adapting to the complex conditions of the Latin American context.

Foro and Special Project Curator

FORO will be the starting point to establish exchanges that contribute to the strengthening of dialogue and collaboration networks for contemporary Latin American visual arts.

Special Project encourages the realization of site-specific projects that can co-exist with the architecture of Casa Prado's hall, which, due to its stylistic and spatial characteristics, allows artists to delve into different artistic languages and formats.
