El Perú: Art in the Contemporary Past

September 6, 2019May 3, 2020

Curated by Dr. Tey Marianna Nunn, Director and Chief Curator of the NHCC Art Museum, the exhibit, El Perú: Art in the Contemporary Past, aims to break down stereotypes of what visitors expect to see in a “Peruvian art exhibit.” The exhibit will highlight works by 20th and 21st century Peruvian artists all of whom explore Peruvian the pre-colonial and colonial past while addressing race, class and inclusion in the contemporary present.  Works include photography, sculpture, ceramics, painting, and multimedia.

There is a growing Peruvian community in New Mexico and throughout the southwest (not to mention the United States).  This will be the NHCC Art Museum’s first exhibit to showcase Peruvian visual arts and the museum greatly looks forward furthering appreciation of Peru by sharing the inherent nuances of this incredible country and its artists.
