Paz Errázuriz

Urban Impulses: Latin American Photography From 1959 to 2017 

We are proud to announce that Paz Errázuriz is selected to exhibit at the Urban Impulses show at The Photographers Gallery, London (14th June - 6th October 2019). This exhibition includes half a century of Latin American photography, from 1959 to 2016, through more than two hundred images selected from the collection of Leticia and Stanislas Poniatowski. Curated by Alexis Fabri and Maria Willis, some of the photographs by Errazuriz include an image from the El Tango Series (1988). 

Famous for her photographs which captured life in Chile under Pinochet, the artist focuses on subjects at the margins or transgressions of society – outcasts, fighters, circus performers, to name a few. Often compared to artists such as Nan Goldin and Richard Billingham, an important difference with her work is that the artist put herself in considerable risk when capturing these images.
 
In 2015, Paz Errázuriz represented Chile at the Venice Biennale. Her work has been exhibited extensively internationally and most recently she has had a retrospective at Fundación MAPFRE, which will travel to Jeu de Paume-Tours this year. Her work will also be included in ‘Radical Women: Latin American Art 1960 – 1985’ at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles.
 
Errázuriz’s work is in important public collections including the Tate, London; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid and Daros Latin America Collection, Zurich
