LARA (Latin American Roaming Art)

Founded in Bogotá, Colombia (first edition) in 2012
Directed by Amanda Goldin

The LARA project is considered “roaming”; every edition will take place in a different location and country within Latin America. It is roaming by its nature (there is no specific country as a base), without losing its core strategy and purpose. The location serves as the inspiration behind each artist’s work. The result will be an exhibition of different responses to the environment, yet bound by the connecting story or central theme of the location itself.

LARA aims to initiate discourse, critical thinking and interaction with local and Latin American communities through the concept of creation through experience. It is structured to allow the artist to reflect upon the diversity of landscape, political, social, anthropological and ethnographic issues of the location they visit. As a philanthropic venture, it also aims to introduce art and culture to underprivileged areas, providing educational workshops for local communities.

LARA is unique opportunity for artists to partake in a fully-funded residency, and provides an opportunity to exhibit overseas and gain exposure in Asia. LARA is committed to contribute to building the profile of Latin American contemporary art and work along with Asiaciti Trust which is an independent trustee and fiduciary services business group offering specialist services internationally to both private clients and corporations.  Asiaciti Trust has its foundations in chartered accountancy practices and is one of the most recognised and professionally respected names in the international fiduciary services industry.

On its different editions LARA has taken place in:
–  Honda, Colombia 2012
– Ollantaytambo, Perú 2013
– Oaxaca, México 2014
– Galápagos, Ecuador 2016
