Direlia Lazo and Carolina Ariza repeated curating Solo Swab. The section preserves the individual format with presentations of Latin American artists, and special attention to those artistic practices marked procedural and documentary. Poetic narratives that explore the history and confront the discontinuity and heterogeneity of the "official" story. Continuing the previous edition, Solo Swab intended as a platform for thought and reflection on the current artistic production in Latin American political dialogue with the social context.

SWAB GATE consists of solo presentations of African and Caribbean artists, living and working in Africa, Europe or between the two continents with a strong focus on painting. The participating galleries for this section of the fair have been selected and invited by curator Eva Barois De Caevel. The six selected galleries are located both in Africa and in Europe. This program aims first at presenting the work of six great contemporary painters, but it also hopes to question the history and the actuality of categories such as the one we use here — painting as a medium and the geographical origin.

Curators: Susana Sanz Giménez & Na Risong

Chinese contemporary art is a complicated mosaic made of different trends. This programme, has a selection of just one of those many tendencies, which represents a "dialogue with the tradition", a way to create a unique contemporary Chinese art rooted in a long cultural tradition different from the Western art aesthetics.

Contrary to the negative vision of curators and art critics that consider Chinese art as a merely copy of Western art, the “new photography from China” shows the opposite. For instance, Chinese artists adapt the aesthetics of Chinese landscape painting to express contemporary social problems and personal concerns.

From the nostalgic approach to the past, through the awareness of pollution in China or the irreverent interpretation of tradition, new photographers from China have recovered the task of building a contemporary Chinese “avant-garde” art, that combine Western art and Chinese art and whose ultimate goal is to create an own language, to find their own space and identity.
