>> 43 Salón (inter) Nacional de Artistas, Medellín
In-depth report by Universes in Universe, including photos, videos and information of works by more than 100 participants
From 6 September to 3 November 2013 Medellín hosted the 43rd edition of the (Inter) National Salon of Artists, Colombia's main event of contemporary visual arts, featuring more than 100 Colombian and foreign artists. It is an initiative of the Ministry of Culture, working in this edition in partnership with the Secretary of Civic Culture of the Municipality of Medellín.
The first edition of the Salón took place in 1940 and, since then, it has been renewed conceptually in several occasions. The 43 Salón (inter) Nacional de Artistas introduces a change to the name that has been maintained following the tradition. By joining (inter), it acknowledges a strengthened link towards the international art scene, a shift in focus that already begun in the Salon’s two most recent editions. The idea is that the Salon becomes a place where local, national and international artistic expressions meet up and engage in a rich dialogue.
