The exhibition "Visual and graphic History of Magic", "4 Centuries of Conjuring" will be among the most surprising and opportune of this cultural year at the prestigious National Museum of Decorative Art, hosted at the Errázuriz Palace.
This museum, which once exhibited the largest Dali Collection in the world, will now show pieces of the Martín Pacheco Collection, considered the best of its type in Latin America and one of the best in the Spanish speaking world will be
displayed to the public. Posters, original lithographs from XIX and XX centuries, rare magic book editions (1584-1900), magician's advertisements -some designed by famous artists of the XIX century - billboards and playbills, objects, clothing, toys and many more apparatus related to the Art of magic will be shown. A special room will be a tribute to the Great
Fu-Manchú. This is a unique opportunity to all interested parties in Design and the Fine Arts in general and all lovers of
magic in particular, to appreciate these never before shown in public rare pieces from a private Collection.
A bilingual (spanish & english) catalog of 112 pages color was published. Download a sample PDF in http://www.pacheco.com.ar

The exhibition will be open to the public from Friday June 8 through Sunday August 5, Monday through Friday from 2pm until 7pm, while Saturdays, Sundays, holidays and winter holidays open hours will be from 12 to 8 pm.
