From the organizer:
You are invited to the exhibition ‘Johanna Calle / Irregular Hexagon: Colombian Art in Residence’, an art project curated by José Roca (Adjunct Curator, Latin American Art, TATE Modern, London, UK), co-produced by Fundación Gilberto Alzate Avendaño (ascribed to Bogotá’s Culture, Leisure and Sports Secretariat) and the Colombian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Johanna Calle, trained as an oil painter, experiments with drawing by burning or piercing wood, bending wire, typewriting on paper, or using writing as line. Her works question how we manipulate the visual world, particularly its violence and social injustice.
Sàn Art is honored to be a part of this international project showcasing established Colombian contemporary art for the first time in Vietnam. For further information on participating galleries in this project please visit here.

Calle holds an MFA from the Chelsea College of Art, London, 1993 and a BA in Art Studies, Los Andes University, Bogota, Colombia, 1989.
