Gianfranco Foschino is featured in the exhibition Colección MAC: Post 90 at Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Santiago. In celebration of the museum's 70th anniversary, MAC Santiago presents an exhibition of works from their collection that were produced post-1990 and that have important connections to the visual preservation of Chilean heritage.

 

The exhibition features over 300 works from emerging and established artists. The exhibition also features a selection of works that were produced pre-1990, but were donated post-1990, highlighting the generations of artists and movements that influenced the founding years of the museum. Through the exhibition, MAC Santiago tells not only its own story, but the story of the country as a whole, documenting pivotal moments in the history of Chile, including the rise of the military dictatorship in 1973 and the return of democracy in 1990.

 

The exhibition is curated by Francisco Brugnoli and will be on view through July 2, 2017.
