Dulce Tumaco, curated by Colombian curator José Roca, director of FLORA ars + natura, brings together works by fifteen artists who address the problems associated with the cultivation of cocoa in the vicinity of Tumaco, port of the department of Nariño, in the Colombian Pacific.
Through installations, videos, photographs, sculptures and testimonies of inhabitants of the region, the exhibition reflects on the complexities of cocoa production and its impact on Afro-Colombian communities. Some of the works were made from short-term residences in Tumaco, organized to enable the artists to enter communities that have preserved the ancestral cocoa species, thus resisting the cultivation of coca in a complex territory of Colombia, which has suffered in its own flesh violence and marginalization.
The exhibition will be open to the public until December 15, 2018.
Where?: Zona T, carrera 12A, between 83rd and 84th streets, Bogotá
When?: Tuesday to Sunday 2 to 7 pm. Free admission.
