TRAVESIA CUATRO was founded in 2003 by Silvia Ortiz and Inés López-Quesada as a gallery for emerging and mid-career international artists. In recent years, we have focused on building a bridge between Latin American and European art scenes.

In November 2013, Travesía Cuatro opened a new gallery in the Casa Franco – designed by architect Luis Barragán in 1929 – in Guadalajara, Mexico, to keep our fingers on the pulse of change, incorporating new artists and furthering the careers of the established gallery artists, such as the three guadalajara artists, Jose Dávila, Gonzalo Lebrija and Jorge Méndez Blake, that have been on program since the beginning.

Since 2004 international artists have been invited to take part together with the artists represented by the gallery in a series of groupshows, including “Conversations I” (2007), “Conversations II” (2010), “Atardecer Ranchero” (2011), “Esa cosa verde de ahí fuera” (2011) curated by Jose Castañal, “The Exact Weight of Lightness” (2012) curated by Luiza Teixeira de Freitas and Thom O’Nions, “Del Buen Salvaje al Conceptual Revolucionario” (2013) curated by Pablo León de la Barra, “Translation Movement” (2014), “Love or the Lack of it” (2015) curated by Friedrich Kunath or “El que Camina al Lado” (2016) curated by Luiza Teixeira de Freitas and Claudia Segura.
