Carlos Alberto González
In memory of Carlos Alberto González, ArtNexus shares this interview about the 2013 opening of the Deco house museum, held as part of the celebrations for the 100 year anniversary of Sevilla, Valle (Colombia).

On that occasion, Carlos Alberto González inaugurated an important collection of Deco, Art Nouveau, 1950s and '60s objects, in the building, originally built in 1935. The space was open to visitors during specific seasons and was adapted for lectures, film projections, and projects with local underprivileged youth.

In the house's facilities, González proposed a parallel between what was taking place in the world and in Twentieth-Century Sevilla. It was a spatio-temporal "journey" idealized and materialized by the curator using furniture, artworks, and objects. The interview was produced by VivaVisión Channel.
