Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Chile had a reason to celebrate this summer. The president of Fundation AMA, Juan Yarur teamed up with one of Chile’s top art institutions to premiere David LaChapelle’s retrospective show titled “Fotografiás 1984 – 2013“. While the opening ceremony in MAC hosted over 1 300 guests, two weeks after the official opening LaChapelle‘s exhibition attracted more than 15 thousand visitors and remains open until 27th September.

“This exhibition will be a milestone for our cultural scene and especially for our museum. LaChapelle´s seductive work comes from a language and a content that inserts itself in the middle of society consumption. This exhibition has been gladly received by a young public, but also has created controversy in a more conservative audience, because of the fantasy made by an extraordinary technique that confronts the traditional idea of photography as an indisputable reference of reality, ”says Francisco Brugnoli, director of MAC.
