El Perú: Art in the Contemporary Past

September 6, 2019October 18, 2020

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 celebrates the work of  artists Baldomero Alejos (1924-1976) a photographer from Ayacucho; Ana de Orbegoso, a multimedia artist inspired by the Cuzco School, Pre-Colombian pottery and Peruvian history and identity; Kukuli Velarde, a ceramicist who addresses class racism, and exclusion  in her ceramics, and Lorry Salcedo, a photographer whose striking black and white images connect the Peruvian past to its present.   Each artist explores the Peruvian pre-colonial and colonial past while addressing race, class and inclusion in the contemporary present.  Works include photography, sculpture, ceramics, painting, and multimedia in juxtaposition with examples of their historical antecedents.
