Pre-opening of Metalmorphosis at the Museum of Fine Arts
As a special treat for the members and stakeholders of Chile Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the board extended to them an invitation to the pre-opening of the exhibit “Metalmorphosis”,” at the National Museum of Fine Arts held on Wednesday, March 21. More than 130 guests attended this event, including special guests of the event’s sponsor Julius Bär-Chile.
The event, held in the context of Women’s Month, highlighted the work of 12 Chilean artists that work metal in different formats as proof of feminine resilience when confronted with the vicissitudes of working with a material that presents itself as difNicult. The artists are: Alejandra Prieto, Catalina Bauer, Marcela Bugueiro, Isidora Correa, Pamela de la Fuente, Amelia Errázuriz, Virginia Guilisasti, Michelle Marie- Letelier, Livia Marín, Karen Pazán, Rosario Perriello and Ana María Lira.
The events opened with a welcome by Roberto Farriol, director of the National Museum of Fine Arts; greeting remarks by James Walker, CEO of Julius Bar-Chile and of Magdalena Krebs, general manager of Mustakis Foundation. Drina Rendic, president of the Chile Committee of the NMWA closed the welcoming remarks.
The exhibit’s curator, Gloria Cortes, together with the museum’s docent team led a total of Nive guided tours that took place continually throughout the event, including the participation of the artists who offered the guests a unique opportunity to learn of their works through the artists’ explanations and direct dialogue.
While the guided visits were taking place, the guests were able to enjoy a delicious cocktail reception prepared by caterer, Jackie Guiloff, in the midst of a magical environment created by the lighting and staging of Benjamin LeBeuffe.
Among the attendees we highlight the attendance of Mr. Jorge Luis Valdes Ambassador of Peru in Chile and his wife Maria Roma Mantero; Mrs. Beata Stiro, Ambassador of Norway in Chile; Mr. David Fogelson, Cultural Attaché of the Embassy of the United States in Chile; Mrs. Kenny Hirmas and former Senator and Cabinet Member Sergio Bitar and Mr. Carlos Moran, Director of DIRAC (the Directorate of Cultural Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Chile).
Metalmorphosis is also possible thanks to the “Cultural Donations Law,” and the collaboration of DIRAC; Ward Van Lines Company and FR Insurance Group.
The exhibit, located in the First Floor North Wing of the National Museum of Fine Arts (Jose Miguel de la Barra 650, Santiago) will be open to the public until May 27, 2018.
