Here are about a dozen shots I snapped from the exhibit Estampas, Independencia y Revolucion last week, currently having a second run at the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo (MAC) in Santiago.

It includes fifty-one limited edition prints and one sculpture by renowned contemporary artists, mostly Mexican, works donated by the Mexican government to MAC as a birthday present for Chile’s bicentennial in 2010 and the 100th anniversary of it’s revolution. I really liked La Patria, by Demian Flores, above and Monica Mayer’s Yo no celebro ni conmemoro guerras, or I do not celebrate or commemorate war, below.
