Summary note
National Art Prize 2007 and former Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Guillermo Núñez (Santiago, 1930) has been featured in the recent history of art and is one of the most important visual artists of Chile. At 85 years, MAC has decided to review his career. Under the curatorship of MAC team, together with the artist, this exhibition reassembles remembered pieces of the artist. From the sketches of serigraphs Nunez made for the first and only play of Pablo Neruda. After the military coup, Guillermo Nunez was arrested twice. The latter is one of the most emblematic of censorship in art during the dictatorship cases. In March 1975, he opened the shows and exculturas Printuras in the French Chilean Institute. The pieces that comprised -other than cages that kept everyday objects arranged in some commonly included a tricolor tie that hung like gallows. The work led to the closure of the sample and the arrest of the artist. The MAC rewrites this exhibition 40 years of opening, claiming political action from the work of the artist in times of resistance. Nunez tireless exploration of the possibilities of the graphic, painting, drawing, the scenography and the object, passing even the literary exercise, remains to this day. This exhibition also presents his latest works and art books. Simultaneously, the Museum of Memory and Human Rights will present an exhibition centered homonymous drawings Guillermo Núñez. "The exhibition begins with works that show his contact with pop art, but which in this respect, they exhibit their critical position of a clear political content, created between the mid-1060's and the beginning of the 1970s, highlighting very well the socio-cultural concerns of the moment."
