ARTSY: SHAKE it UP TESTINO x SOTHEBY’s

MARIO TESTINO’s Shake It Up is coming soon Sotheby’s London. Sharing his artistic journey, Testino is sharing 300 works from his personal collection and holding an exhibition and sale.  The imaginatively installed exhibition – directed and designed by Testino himself of course – will reveal the constant and lively dialogue the legendary Peruvian photographer enjoys with some of the greatest artists of our time.

“I always wanted to collect things that weren’t like me. I’ve always been excited by everything that makes me look at something differently” –  Testino

 

Over a series of live and online auctions, a curated group of paintings, photographs, works on paper and sculpture, will be offered to benefit the Museo MATE, Peru.

Alongside two auctions of international contemporary art on the 13 and 14 September, Sotheby’s will stage an online sale of 88 photographs that have inspired and influenced Testino’s own work in the medium.

Testino started collecting photography in the 1980s – specifically a portrait of Vivien Leigh by the surrealist photographer Angus McBean. His initial focus was on early and mid-20th century photography before moving on to contemporary practitioners which are the focus of the online auction.

The collection is a unique and important archive of the work of pioneering contemporary fine-art and documentary photographers. Many of the artists are multidisciplinary and use photography alongside their performance, installation, film, drawing, painting and sculptural practice. Highlights include works by Vanessa Beecroft, Olafur Eliasson, Nan Goldin, Florian Maier-Aichen, Andres Serrano, Wolfgang Tillmans, Gregory Crewdson, Martin Parr and Richard Mosse, among many others.

Mario Testino established the not-for-profit Museo MATE in Lima to promote and support local and global culture in Peru. Proceeds from the auction will go toward the expansion of the centre’s programme of exhibitions, residencies and education initiatives.
