During this week and until June 12th, Milan Design Week is being held in Italy, where some Colombian collectives and designers will be representing the country.
The traditions, crafts, colors and diversity of the country have been reflected through a group of artists and designers who address the eco-sustainable development in the world of Colombian design.
With the support of the Colombian Embassy in Rome, the Colombian Consulate in Milan and Procolombia present until this weekend at the Fabbrica del Vapore the exhibition The Children of Macondo, organized by a group of artists and designers from different areas of the country.
At the Fabbrica del Vapore, an old train factory now converted into an exhibition center, 7 Colombian artists will be in charge of telling the history and traditions of the country.
Adriana Londoño, Erika Olaya, Santiago Luna, Laura Gómez, Pedro Uriel Sánchez and Angélica Díaz along with Estefanía Aragón are the artists who captured the eco-sustainable development in the world of Colombian crafts and design.
The central theme of the exhibition Los hijos de Macondo is "Between space and time", a common thread that has connected the artists and designers who will present their projects and creations through a new reading of Colombian traditions, emphasizing the value of craftsmanship and with special attention to circularity and sustainability.
Along the same lines, inclusion in every part of the creative process is fundamental because "craftsmanship and design become the synthesis of ancient knowledge, skill, technique and innovation, building an ideal bridge between the past and the future," explained the event's organizers.
