laberinto projects is an arts, education and cultural legacy preservation platform that fosters contemporary art practices, social inclusion and dialogue in El Salvador, Central America and its diaspora.

At the core of laberinto projects is the belief that artists are at the forefront of innovation and interdisciplinary discourse, and that art serves as a catalyst to shape civil society. We provide a unique framework for art practice, cultural studies and for the access, collection and distribution of knowledge.

laberinto projects aim to establish an art historical continuum in El Salvador and Central America through the study, conservation, digitization and dissemination of significant archives and collections –including the laberinto projects’ archive which documents the history of galería el laberinto and the country’s most significant collection of art produced during the civil war and post-war period.
