Swab 2023 presented last October, the programme Focus LATAM, curated by Santiago Gasquet, co-director of PIEDRAS (Buenos Aires), a platform for the exchange of management projects dedicated to showing recent productions by Latin American artists.
The section brought together six spaces from the cities of Lima, Santiago de Chile, Buenos Aires, Salta and Madrid, focusing on the richness of the different ways of carrying out models of representation and promotion of young artists in each context.
The selected galleries presented the following artists:
Bloc Gallery: Verónica Cerna and Verónica Penagos.
Collectio: Isidora Villarino and José Cori.
Espacio Enhorabuena: Venuca Evanán and Iosu Aramburu.
Galeria Grasa: Antonella Agesta and Amparo Viau
