From February 6 to June 5, 2016, the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain will present for the first time in Europe a comprehensive retrospective of the work of Fernell Franco, a major yet still under recognized figure of Latin American photography. A photojournalist by profession, Fernell Franco developed a powerful personal body of work that addressed the precarious and conflicted nature of urban life in Cali, the city where he lived and worked for most of his career. 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, marked by a spirit of collaboration amongst a diverse community of artists. 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 and a remembrance of their fruitful artistic collaborations.
