Terminal was born during the pre-pandemic months of 2019. We originally focused on rising Ecuadorian visual artists, with the aim to circulate their work in galleries, book stores and art book fairs worldwide. Since then, the project has grown exponentially, collaborating with artists, curators and thinkers within South America, the Caribbean and the Latinx diaspora.
Today, Terminal partners are located in Quito, Mexico City and New York, slowly becoming a platform / collective exploring art within the diaspora, alternative visions of contemporary culture, resistance discourses, archives, manifestos and Latinx politics, food, sound and memory.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we published fifteen free and downloadable "documents" by Latin American artists while on lockdown. The series, called DistANSIAS, has since become a timeless exploration of resiliency and the healing powers of creativity.
Lately, we partnered with NYC-based activist and feminist Dj, Riobamba, to launch DeAquíDeAllá, an imprint within the Terminal ecosystem focused on sound artists from the global south.
Terminal books are in the collection of institutions like the New York City Public Library, the Centro for Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College, Printed Matter and the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA).
