CURRENT EXHIBITION

FRAGMENTED DIALOGUES: MARIO FONSECA & MAURICIO VALENZUELA (ART AND IDENTITY IN 1980S CHILE)

11 May 2018 - 18 July 2018

Austin / Desmond Fine Art is delighted to announce Fragmented Dialogues, an exhibition in collaboration with CF-LART London that brings together the work of conceptual artist Mario Fonseca and photographer Mauricio Valenzuela. Both Fonseca and Valenzuela worked in Santiago, Chile, during the 1970s and 1980s. Despite two seemingly very different bodies of work, both artists intrinsically shared a strong dialogue around the notions of absence and prohibited identity.

Please note we are not open on Saturday or Sunday.

Also on display are a selection of works by Edward Burra, Patrick Caulfield, Eduardo Chilida, John Craxton, David Hockney, Peter Lanyon, Tony Longson, Mary Martin, Margaret Mellis, Paul Nash, Victor Pasmore & Terry Pope.
