Based in Guatemala City, Proyectos Ultravioleta is a multifaceted platform for experimentation founded in 2009. It’s an initiative dedicated to the production of exhibitions, multidisciplinary projects, discussion forums, concerts, happenings, and public interventions, as well as a platform for intermediation between other local and foreign projects.

The group running this space includes Stefan Benchoam, Emiliano Valdés, and Lord Byron Mármol. Regular artists and collaborators include: Byron Mármol, Stefan Bechoam, Juan Brenner, El Buró de Intervenciones Públicas, Alberto Rodríguez Collía, Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa, Radamés “Juni” Figueroa, and Jessica Kairé.

Founded in July 2012, by artists Jessica Kairé and Stefan Benchoam, NuMu is the first museum dedicated to contemporary art in Guatemala City and was generated as a response to the lack of museums promoting, exhibiting, and registering local and international contemporary art in Guatemala.

Reflecting the evolving landscape of the art scene, this platform will be updated as new information becomes available. Thanks to the artists and curators who have helped to shape and enrich the project to date.
