Chantal Fabres Latin American Art
A graduate from New York University’s Stern Graduate School of Business, Chantal Fabres, a Chilean national, began collecting photography in the early 1990s. After completing a Master’s Degree at Sotheby’s in the History of Photography, she specialized on political Chilean photography under the dictatorship.
Chantal’s knowledge and interest in Chilean photography has led her to represent and support artists whose work came to define the artistic scene in Chile from the seventies onwards. The important role photography played in this period became the catalyst for an exhibition she curated at the Michael Hoppen Gallery, ‘VOCES: Latin American Photography 1980-2010’, 2015. A Patron on the photography acquisition committee (PAC) at Tate Modern in 2011/12, she is also a nominator for the Prix Pictet, taking advantage of these platforms to promote Latin American photography. Chantal has contributed editorial essays and is an invited guest lecturer on the subject. For more information click here.
