To be Continued is a landmark survey exhibition of Roberto Chabet’s plywood works from 1984 to the present. In these works, he uses his signature material – store- bought plywood boards. It is a material, which has become not only the surface and support of his paintings and installations, but to a large extent their subject matter and content.

for alternative proposition.
