The Chilean landscape is unique in the world. For its diversity and its magnificence. The extreme north, arid, desert, contrasts with the south, polar and silhouetted by high peaks. In between, forests, jungles, lakes, rivers and volcanoes. A unique starry sky, and a coastline that seems eternal. The artists have been captivated, trapped by the environment. In this exhibition, we offer you a selection of contemporary artists who have translated the landscape through art.
