About

The Bird in Space is –

A series of alternative travel guides for first-timers & local art-minded, aesthetic, ever-curious nomads. 

Written from first hand experience and with love, for you.

 

Welcome to The Bird in Space, my friends.

My name is Andrea Wild (yes, that’s my last name) and I am a devout art lover, art historian by education, gallerist/dealer/researcher/enthusiast by profession, writer in my free time and a traveler at all times. I’m Colombian by birth and a nomad to the core who is currently based in Mexico City.

For the past 8 years I’ve been working in sales, as artist liaison, and researcher for Acquavella Galleries (New York), LABOR (Mexico City), Galerie Gmurzynska (Zürich) and Blain Southern (London). After finishing my MA in Art Business in London I moved back to Mexico City in January 2016 where I became Head of International Development for the Tamayo Museum and successfully founded the International Council, the first organ of its kind in any museum in Latin America, created with the objective of purchasing works for the permanent collections of the museum. Simultaneously, I organized and produced the exhibition Atopía from the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection (TBA21), Vienna in the Museum of Modern Art Bogotá (MamBO). And then, inspiration struck and I co-founded Salón Nomada La Milagrosa: a nomad salon of contemporary art where we produce extraordinary worlds and immersive experiences to exhibit works by emerging, Latin American artists.

The Bird in Space was actually born in 2012 as a means to express endless thoughts and opinions I have about art and its mysterious world; to re-tell my favorite stories and to shout from the mountain tops that art prolongs life. But as travel is deeply embedded in my DNA and it is practically religion in the art industry, The Bird has evolved to provide you with art-oriented travel guides as a means of connecting, embracing and discovering art in its many forms, like a local.

This is where you come to discover the soul of authentic art-focused destinations like a boss: from biennales and art fairs to artisan communities and cities through the eyes of creative mavericks, kinky designers, curious collectors, maddening artists, ambitious architects and anyone with an aesthetic sensitivity. It’s also your how-to gateway to understanding the unregulated art world – just because!

Updated weekly.
