Culture lives and beats in Chile; it advances it is nurtured and constantly growing.the established and the emerging; the classics and the nonconforming; all of which contribute to Chilean art’s many nuances.
Young artists, like Manuel García, Javiera Mena, Geoe, Dënver and Ana Tijourx, with influences that span from the most popular international pop to Violeta Parra and Victor Jara; film that represents the best of Chile and its history, with young filmmakers who propose new viewpoints and garner attention from around the world: Sebastián Lelio, Pablo Larraísn, Andres Wood, Sebastián Silva, Dominga Sotomayor, Alicia Scherson, among many. the renowned literature of Neruda and Mistral and Bolaño is mixed with the new words of Carlos Labbé, Alejandro Zambra, Pedro Lemebel or Roberto Merino, whose reputations grown alongside the beloved Isabel Allende and the living myths that is the antipoet Nicanor Parra.
Parades and dances that display countless traditions of distinct origins that have found in Chile a perfect place to express themselves and combine in a very unique way. Art that transverses the streets of Santiago and Valparaíso, with anonymous and collective talent that creates street art in its own voice through its own colors.
Chilean wit, with its generous and open smile, next to words, music, and film that go beyond the mountains and the sea. Vicente Huiodobro and Raúl Ruiz; Pedro Lemebel and Alejandro Jodorowsky, Roberto Matta and Sergio Larraín.
