Things are bound to change. Once again, Despacio transforms into an artist-run space. During the month of August and September, the artists Marcela Araya, Kenneth Coronado, Priscila Gómez, Flavia Sánchez, Yuli Yamagata, and Ivanna Yujimets run Despacio under the name La próxima.
Once again, Despacio transforms into an artist run space during the months of May and June.
