From Thursday, March 7 at 6:00 pm, within the framework of the International Film Festival of Cartagena de Indias (FICCI), in its 59th edition, the exhibition "Migrants" is inaugurated at the Training Center of the Spanish Cooperation, by the Cartagena’s artist Diana Herrera Ordosgoitia. The exhibition, characterized by the prominence of colors, portrays from the artist's perspective, the phenomenon of migration and how it shapes the society in which we live.
The exhibition opens in the framework of the FICCI, since the official image of this edition of the Festival is part of the collection that Diana Herrera presents in the exhibition hall of the Training Center. 'Migrants' is a meeting point for reflection on the issue of migration, its different manifestations, and its consequences.
This free admission sample can be visited from Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Diana Herrera Ordosgoitia
Born in Cartagena in 1982. Diana studied at the European Institute of Design in Barcelona, at the Lorenzo de Medici School in Florence and at the Universidad de Los Andes in Colombia.
As an exponent of contemporary art, her technique and creativity are reflected in the combination of materials that range from the social pages of local newspapers, to ground coffee, acrylic, charcoal and wood, among others. Her work highlights the creation of sensations from the chromatic combinations, which tell the story of daily characters removed and carefully isolated from their reality to be exposed in a new environment.
Her work is the collection of urban and rural moments, captured around the world, that transmit the lonely human condition and the itinerant and unrepeatable of the moment.
