Helena Producciones

Helena Producciones is an artist collective that seeks to investigate the relationship between artistic production in Colombia and the social, economic, political conditions of specific contexts.
Using interdisciplinary approaches Helena develops programs such as the Festival de Performance de Cali, which is now in its 7th edition and has been supported twice by the Prince Claus Foundation.

Helena also makes various curatorial activities.
As an educational platform the Escuela Móvil de Saberes y Práctica Social has been developed in structures outside the formal education system and traditional art teaching forms. In 2010 Helena partnered with Triangle Network to develop in Colombia the first edition of the program “workshops” of the network in Juanchaco, Ladrilleros and La Barra, in front of the port Buenaventura. This format promotes a space for gathering, research and production for artists during two weeks in a specific context.

Helena Producciones are: Wilson Díaz, Claudia Patricia Sarria-Macías, Ana Maria Millán, Andres Sandoval Alba and Gustavo Racines. The archive built by Helena has been part of the exhibitions as Cali en el Espejo, Or Gallery, Vancouver, 2007; To be Political it has to Look Nice, Apexart, New York, 2003; De la representation a l’action, Le Plateau, Paris, 2002.
