Taller Quiasmo

| Textile | Painting | Installation | Drawing | Printmaking

Quiasmo Taller-Galería is a self-managed project that began in 2012 with the purpose of opening a space for meeting and conversation among friends, neighbors and children who share an interest in arts and crafts.

In addition to being the workshop space for the artists involved in the project, it is a place where several proposals converge, such as "En el Taller," a creation laboratory where classes are taught for children and young people. It also hosts collective gatherings such as sewing circles, workshops, conferences, and local entrepreneurship fairs.

It has an exhibition space that is activated with activities proposed by the artists who showcase their work; one of the objectives is to make visible the work of the boys and girls who go through the workshop.

Quiasmo Taller-Galería is part of the Creative District of Teusaquillo, a project led by Mapa Teusaquillo, one of our main allies with whom we develop activities such as workshops, heritage visits, open days, among others.

The project is composed of: Carlos Naranjo, architect, sculptor, and teacher / Emma Naranjo, draftsman / Ana Milena Gómez, visual artist, weaver, and teacher.
