Juan Yarur Torres’ collection started many years before Fundación AMA was founded, but today the collection functions as its main and most important axis.
It is composed of over 450 pieces, and is based on personal taste as well as intimate and subjective interests of the collector. The collection’s narrative embraces from gender issues, political statements, avant-garde movements as well as Modern and Contemporary corner stone pieces. Today the collection includes both national and international artworks, composed by 50% Chilean artworks, 25% of Latin American artists and 25% of global artists, and it continues to grow each year.
The Juan Yarur collection was first exhibited in 2011 at the Saatchi Gallery and Phillips de Pury, London. A larger exhibit was staged in Santiago, Chile at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (Contemporary Art Museum) in 2013.
