Beatriz Esguerra

Founder at Beatriz Esguerra Art

Beatriz Esguerra has an academic training in art history from Middlebury College and the Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies, and more than 25 years experience as a curator, consultant and gallery owner. Early in her career she worked as an editor, museologist and curator with the Gold Museum of the Bank of the Republic, the Bibilioteca Luis Angel Arango, and the Museum of Modern Art in Bogotá. She went on to work over ten years as an independent consultant and dealer, and then opened her gallery in 2000 in order to promote select Colombian artists in Latin America and abroad. As a gallerist, she believes in creating a dialogue between Colombian and international artists through carefully curated projects and exhibitions on a variety of universal themes. Recent efforts emphasizing more outreach, and including greater art fair participation in the US, have brought the gallery renewed attention from the art press, collectors and institutions.
