Like the Museo de Antioquia, the Antioquia Building (Antigua Naviera Grancolombiana) is located at the heart of Medellín. It was formerly the headquarters of the revenue office of the Governor‘s, where people paid their taxes and bought liquor. It was recently taken over by the Universidad de Antioquia and the Salon is part of the initiative to find new uses for the building. The 43SNA will use five levels.
La Heladería (Ice cream parlor)
The space on the first floor of the Antioquia building will host a variety of lively programs highlighting the artistic and cultural life of Medellín. The venue is conceived by the artist Alejandro Mancera (Colombia) as a cafeteria/bar where one-off events can take place; they may last several hours, a morning, an evening or a whole day. Among the activities there will be music concerts, performances, portable art events, video exhibits, evening presentations of artists‘ portfolios, and conversations with artists or cultural producers.
The program for La Heladería will be based on the proposals received in the frame of a submission call from the 43SNA directed to the art scene in Medellín. The space will become alive with activities that will invigorate the Salón and foster the dialogue between the artists and the public.
