DiabloRosso is a creative think tank and space based in Casco Viejo, the historic old quarter of Panama City, Panama. It is a community that supports and promotes young artistic talent in its most broad and multidisciplinary definition.
Founded in 2006, and seeking to fill the void that existed for emerging art spaces in the region, it has established itself as a place seeking to empower and stimulate young minds to break molds and think independently, educate and advance public appreciation of contemporary art and culture, and generate social commentary and impact. After 5 years it has evolved into a premier space for emerging artists and innovative minds from all over the region.
DiabloRosso is a multifunctional space that can be experienced in many ways: the gallery; the café, which transforms into an indie movie house every Tuesday, and the concept store, filled with great stuff from young independent designers both local and international.
The gallery’s yearly program, which includes not only art exhibitions but screenings, artist lectures, dance performances, music experimentation and community art-based projects, reflects both the flexibility of the space and the diverse interest of its creators.
More than a physical space, DiabloRosso is a platform of experimentation, dialog, and collaboration.
