About Video Arte Faenza

Video Arte Faenza started in the context of Circuito Distrito Artistas Centro (DAC – Artists of Centro District) in Bogotá, where selected works were projected over at the Open Studios days, hosting its first edition in May 18 and 19 of 2018.

The open call received more than 70 applications from over 10 different countries, which were projected on 4 programmes: Siénte-lo (feel-it), Abstráe-lo (abstract-it), Juega Local (play local) and Efímero (ephemeral) and hosted the work of established guest artists Miler Lagos and Ricardo Moreno.

Projections were displayed at Cinemateca from Universidad Central in Bogotá, at Universidad Católica of Pereira and at Obra Comisionada in Medellín.

Video Arte Faenza is organized and produced by members of the artistic group Proyecto Faenza, a team of  18 artists located in Bogotá, looking for inclusion of various forms of expression in contemporary art and presentation of them to the public, aiming to establish a dialogue between the artistic creation and colombian local culture.

  1. Hi,

    my apologies I don’t speak much Spanish.

    Many thanks for including my work (a través) in your screening programme. It’s the first time my work is screened in South America, it’s really special. I am part of Room 8 Studio, a small art collective on the East coast of Scotland. We are not only small, but we also have not much money. We would love to come over to Columbia one day and do some work together or a workshop.

    Best wishes and good luck with the festival,
