Details

Curated by Gabriela Germana and Christian Bendayan is a transformative and inclusive exhibition featuring original work from international artists. 

The contemporary artists highlighted are interested in traditional and rural aspects of the Peruvian Amazon as well as in the urban and modern environments and deal with topics such nature, myths, people, local customs and knowledge, gender, and social issues. 

Amazonian art is not a closed and homogeneous category; rather, at the present is a space for new and multiple explorations by artists coming from different perspectives and places. 

Through a group of pieces that include embroideries, paintings, printings, and photographs, this show seeks to introduce contemporary art about and from the Peruvian Amazon to an American audience.
