Art and the City

Arte y Ciudad

The city includes important spatial elements, and these have an influence on our notion of where and how were are situated in the world, and can therefore change our way of thinking and acting politically

David Harvey

Cultural and territorial policies are key to promoting the image of cities and countries. They increase a sense of belonging amongst residents, attract a larger flow of visitors due to cultural offerings, bestow international prestige, strengthen the countrys image, and generate a patrimony for generations to come.

Ch.ACO develops public and community art projects by coordinating municipal operations, cultural institutions, and private entities in order to create a context for the citys cultural and economic development. Through high-impact contemporary art pieces, communities coexist with urban interventions that address sociological, ecological, and social subject matters.
