collaborative projects
1997-2000

Galería Chilena (GCH) / artist-run space
Active between 1997 and 2000 in Santiago, Chile, GCH promoted the work of young artists while testing the possibilities of working in lack of a physical space in the years of transitional democracy and macro economic wealth. The nomadic strategy of GCH was intended as a critique of Santiago's contemporary art circuit, which in the late 90s was composed of either traditional commercial galleries or governmental funded non-profit spaces. From 2000 to 2005 GCH ́s mobility and economy moved away from the framework of the gallery to a collaborative structure of experimentation and encounter; a non-place for discussion and joining forces.
