Bogota might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of big contemporary art cities, but over the past five years, this is what it has become. With recent investments in art and culture, the city is attracting collectors and artists from all over the world (especially from Latin America and Europe). One of Bogota’s main attractions for art enthusiasts is the city’s large number of art fairs; from international exhibitors to local Colombian remote region handcrafters, there is something for everyone. October is well known for being Art Month in Bogota, with a variety of fairs taking place. Here are the best art shows to visit in Colombia’s capital in 2017.
