Fresco Exchange supports the connection between artists by exhibiting their artwork across different venues on a national and international level. The initial collaborating cities are Boston, Massachusetts and Cali, Colombia and we hope to expand to other welcoming cities across the globe. We help promote and collaborate with artists through gallery settings, exhibits and festivals to gain a larger audience and reinforce the idea that art can be used as a tool to cross sociopolitical boundaries, which at times can prevent individuals from traveling freely across countries. Through this creative exchange, our contributing artists’ visions can become more appreciated for both their aesthetic and social content on an international scale.
FEATURED ARTISTS: Fall Tour 2018
This fall, Colombian muralists are traveling to the US to participate in urban art projects, pop-up exhibitions, and community workshops on both the East and West Coasts! Stay tuned for more information, and of course, reach out if you're interested in collaborating during their residency.
FEATURED MURALS: Muro al Barrio Project
Our friends and partners from Colombia’s Fundación Culata lead artistic interventions to improve social and living conditions through the practice of public art. In 2017, the collective launched the “Muro al Barrio” project in Cali's El Piloto neighborhood to revitalize, connect and honor the community.
(Artwork shown here is by Melissa Angel, Diana Zue, Rito, PuroAmor, Nativa, Ivan Salazar, Respo1, Gomas CVLI, Felipe Ortiz, and Percy Fortini-Wright.)
