The exhibition will pop up in a series of shopfront display spaces across Frankston, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia, from late April through to mid-May 2022 coinciding with World Collage Day 2022 (14 May).

Todo Loco began life as the mutant spawn of artists Emma Anna and Fernando García Vásquez who, inspired by the idea of the world gone crazy, and the therapeutic aspects of collage practice, curated the first installment of a group exhibition exploring these themes in 2016.

Three previous editions of the show have now been held on a bi-annual basis popping up in at rebel art space La Casa Verde in Colombia’s Caribbean city of Barranquilla.

The 2020 incarnation of the exhibition coincided with the first wave of lockdowns bought about by the global pandemic and was staged online. In 2022, the fourth version of the exhibition heads Downunder to Emma Anna’s homeland of Australia. Todo Loco IV will pop up initially in Frankston, an outer Melbourne beachside suburb. Activating non-traditional spaces to showcase a collection of outstanding works, the exhibition will be staged in a number of occupied and vacant shopfronts in Frankston’s Central Business District.

A series of free collage workshops will be held at the Frankston Arts Centre in the lead up to the exhibition. Further information will be provided via the project Instagram page @todo_loco_iv.
