Situated in Granada, Cali’s restaurant district, it features a residence for visiting artists, an exhibition space, a movie screening room and a collection of over 4,000 books about modern art from the 1950s onwards.

Eric Rohmer is the institution’s featured director for Feburary, and every Tuesday throughout the month, Lugar a Dudas will host a premier for local documentarians from Valle del Cauca.
