Initially, the need to create a tangible link between the artistic scenes in Europe and Latin America was its primary intention; nowadays TRAVESÍA CUATRO aims to reflect the polyphony and the diversity of discourses that coexist within these contexts.
\nIn recent years TRAVESÍA CUATRO has enriched its program with the representation of artists with aesthetic proposals that through a poetic dimension emulate a definite sociopolitical stance, in order to produce a contrasting dialogue that could be pertinent regarding topics such as identity, global economy and multiculturalism. Representing young and mid-career artists and establishing collaborations with curators from different parts of the world, TRAVESÍA CUATRO has given shape to a unique voice that recognizes the interdisciplinary usage of art as an active tool for situating into a critical perspective the events of the contemporary world.\nIn 2013 the gallery opened a second space in the city of Guadalajara, México, in the Casa Franco, a 1929 home designed by Guadalajara-born architect Luis Barragán.\nIn May 2019 Silvia Ortiz and Inés López-Quesada opened Travesia Cuatro CDMX, a new gallery in Mexico City in partnership with Jaime Gorozpe and Gerard Faggionato. The focus will continue to be on the artists represented by the gallery, as well as in international emerging artists and historical exhibitions. The next exhibition, opening in September 2019, will present a survey of the highly influential Italian artist Alighiero Boetti
