Historia

Poco después de la creación del Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo en 1959, un grupo de funcionarios del banco tomó la iniciativa de crear la Asociación del Personal, cuyo objetivo hasta el día de hoy es representar los intereses del personal del Banco y promover actividades para el pozo. - ser de sus empleados, incluso en los ámbitos cultural, social y deportivo.

Amongst the initial projects of the Staff Association, emerged the idea of creating a space in which to disseminate the various expressions of contemporary art from the member countries of the Bank. This is how the IDB Staff Association Art Gallery was born.

During its nearly fifty years of existence, the gallery has exhibited the work of emerging artists and renowned designers, painters, engravers, tapestry artists, photographers, sculptors, and ceramists, including internationally renowned artists, who embellished the showroom such as Marta Minujin and Nicolas Garcia Uriburu from Argentina and Miguel Angel De Vita from Uruguay.

Nuestra misión

The IDB Staff Association Art Gallery offers exhibitions and cultural activities for Bank employees and the public to experience the various expressions of emerging and established contemporary artists from the member countries of the Bank, in both Latin-America and the Caribbean, as well as from member countries in America, Asia, and Europe. Through its programming, the gallery seeks to foster dialogue among local and international community members, arts organizations, and artists, as well as to increase the appreciation and understanding of contemporary art created in our member countries.
