The exhibition will bring together 140 photographs from 10 different series he produced between 1970 and 1996. It will also reveal the importance of Fernell Franco’s work within a broader cultural context, as part of the vibrant art scene that emerged in Cali at the beginning of the 1970s. Representative of the artists who emerged at this time, Oscar Muñoz has been commissioned by the Fondation Cartier to create a work specifically for the exhibition as a tribute to Fernell Franco. The catalogue published in conjunction with the exhibition will include more than 160 illustrations. Featuring texts by Colombian photographer Oscar Muñoz and curator María Wills Londoño as well as an illustrated biography of the artist, this monograph provides a unique occasion to discover the sensitive and singular work of Fernell Franco.
