Histories of art in Colombia presents new stories about the art produced, consumed, used and inspired in this country, based on twenty-one case studies. Through four thematic axes —identities, materialities, migrations and geographies—, it proposes different readings of the artistic processes in Colombian territory, exploring the works beyond the movements, chronologies and the best-known names. Its protagonists are plates, earrings, drawings, photographs, easel and mural paintings, sculptures and installations, among other works mostly ignored by national historiography.
