Our mission is to create a platform for contemporary creative art projects based in the Chilean Atacama desert with an aim to expand to other remote regions of the country. Each invited artist will be asked to concentrate on their surroundings taking into consideration their geographical, social, political and/or cultural context.
Plataforma Atacama invites both Chilean and international artists to inhabit a specific territory where they can reflect, think, create and produce works of art in response to their personal experience.
