13 ESPACIOarte opened in February 2017, a project founded and managed by the visual artist Tonia Trujillo. 13 ESPACIOarte participates in an ever-widening network of hybrid and independent spaces dedicated to the exhibition, sale, dissemination and promotion of contemporary art.
We advocate for a critical society capable of questioning and dismantling the power strategies and control mechanisms that govern and manipulate our worldview. We defend the role of art as a builder of social consciousness, as a commitment and a tool for change, capable of opening us up to glimpses into other more desirable contexts.
We are convinced that art, as an artistic experience, should lead us to question, debate and acquire knowledge. That is why analysis, reflection and experimentation shape and define our line of work, in a broad panorama that includes all the disciplines in contemporary art.
We make visible women artists whose work analyses inequality and redefines reality from a gender perspective. We support artists who develop projects that address issues social justice, aimed at providing citizens with critical thinking tools, and which facilitate the understanding of complex social realities and the construction of value systems, all through multidisciplinary contemporary creation.
