Shake It Up: Works from the Mario Testino Collection

By Sotheby's

T his September in London, Sotheby's is pleased to present a unique auction takeover collaboration with Mario Testino. As one of the most celebrated photographers of our time, this project will look beyond Testino's enigmatic images that have shaped contemporary culture and reveal the artist as collector, patron and collaborator.

Over a series of live and online auctions, a curated group of paintings, photographs, works on paper and sculpture, from some of the most important artists of the last two decades will be offered in support of Museo Mario Testino, MATE.

In 2012 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, ensuring its success in the future.
