Tallercasa Salamanca

| Textile | Painting | Installation | Drawing | Printmaking |

This is an ideal space for thinking, reading, painting, drawing, cutting, pasting, embroidering, cooking, and, in general, carrying out delicate processes (not industrial or monumental). For Daniel Salamanca, who lives and works in this space, the boundaries between domestic and artistic activities are blurred and unclear. In that sense, the space lends itself to finding meaning in what we do, generating habits of reflection, and reaffirming that making art is a vital and long-term journey.

Daniel Salamanca:

Daniel Salamanca was born in Bogotá in 1983, where he currently lives and works. In 2006, he graduated from the Visual Arts program at Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá. Later, between 2017 and 2019, he pursued a master's degree in the Painting and Drawing department at SAIC (School of the Art Institute of Chicago), where he was awarded the New Artist Society Scholarship. His works and projects have been continuously exhibited in independent, commercial, and institutional spaces, mainly in Colombia, some countries in South America (Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina), Europe (Italy and Spain), and the United States (Chicago, Miami). His practice focuses on detecting the discursive, critical, and narrative potential of things that appear simple and inconsequential. He does this mainly using drawing and painting, in constant conversation with writing, poetry, books, graphics, film, installation, and exhibitions (as a creation format itself). Since 2008, alongside his artistic career, he has been a university lecturer, workshop leader, creative director for cultural projects with the design studio Latitud (of which he is a founding partner), and occasionally a writer or cultural journalist.


Taller Casa Salamanca is a residential apartment of 200 m2 located in a modern building from the 1950s, in the El Nogal neighborhood in Bogotá. It has a single floor and is a hybrid space between a workshop, office, warehouse, and residence, all connected by the kitchen, which is the heart of the place.

The space is equipped with basic furniture such as tables, chairs, stools, a ladder, and other work surfaces. In addition, there are tools (hammer, drill, level, rulers, pliers, screwdrivers, etc.), brushes, paints, pencils, markers, some papers, a plan file, rules, cutting surfaces, a polisher, sandpaper, adhesives, ropes, a home printer, computer, projector, tripod, camera, lights, and basic stationery, as well as a personal library with art books, artist books, and literature.

Hours: Monday to Friday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, except for any exception or special agreement with the resident.
