Just a few months ago, Frenchman Thierry Harribey turned much of his remodeled home (just a few doors up from Bogota Bike Tours) into the Neebex art gallery. He's got his second exhibit on right now, featuring the work of Santiago Oliveros, a 19-year-old Bogotano. You've probably unknowingly already seen Oliveros's work on Bogotá walls, as he's also a graffiti artist.
|Oliveros gave his show a nonsensical name.|
|Money men and industry.|

|The entrance is on Jimenez Ave's|
south side, beside the small police post
and across the street from
the Olimpica Supermarket.
(See also Contemporary Art in Bogotá, held in the same building.)
|The museum's 'patio' - maybe this is why they named it En Obra - 'Under Construction'|
|'I Exist,' a play on 'Exito' or 'Success,' the name of a local supermarket chain.|

Los Andes University itself has this sunnier and more conventional gallery space on the ground floor of its new Santo Domingo building, off of the upper end of Jimenez Ave. (Don't leave your bicycle parked on the sidewalk, tho. I did, and emerged to find it moved across the street, with a neighborhood woman standing by it, holding my dog. The guards had taken alarm because it might have contained a bomb. Fortunately, this woman recognized my dog and intervened. Many more bombs are placed in cars than on bikes. Are they equally paranoid about cars? I doubt it.)
The current exhibit is 'Six Decades of Art by Margarita Lozano, an artist of fine poetic content.'
