The Universe of Arturo Jiménez Borja
The ICPNA and the Universidad Católica have organized under the curatorial of the museologist Luis Repetto, a sample that gathers a selection of the most important between gourds, masks, crowns of feathers, musical instruments and archaeological material- from the collection that Arturo Jiménez Borja treasured throughout his life as a lover of Peruvian popular culture. This exhibit will be open to the public from August 10 to September 11 at the Germán Krüger Espantoso Gallery. Likewise, in the framework of this exhibit as homage to the outstanding work of the collector, as of August 17 until September 25 at the ICPNA San Miguel Gallery, there will be a series of documents, photographs and paintings presented. These illustrate his intellectual trajectory as well as his incursion into the fine arts. From Tuesday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
From Sanmarkos to Retablo Ayacuchano
(July 10 - August 31, 2003)
The exhibit illustrates, through different genre of Andean plastic (imagery, ceramics, painting and sculpture) the formal evolution of this emblematic piece of the traditional Peruvian art. This exhibit is presented as homage to the late ethnologist Emilio Mendizábal Losack (1922 - 1979), author of one of the fundamental studies on this subject. Precisely, the reedition of such publication, under the responsibility of the Instituto de Investigaciones Museológicas y Artísticas of the Ricardo Palma University, complement this exhibit that is articulated on some of his fundamental theories.
A Window to the Infinite: Shipibo-Conibo art
(July10 – September 1, 2002)
Exhibit of Shipibo-Conibo art with which a series dedicated to Popular Peruvian Art is initiated. ICPNA plans to develop these exhibits in successive years. This first great exhibit gathered pieces made of wood, ceramics and textiles in a space which has normally been dedicated to “cultured art”. The popular art has always been segregated and the one of our Jungle even more. Through this sample we try to contribute to its adequate appraisal. Carolyn Heath is the curator of this exhibit that has selected more than 300 contemporary and archeological pieces that come from 15 private collections and from specialized museums and institutions. The cultural Direction of ICPNA has counted with the counseling and support of Mary Solari, Jaime Liébana and John Alfredo Davis who have helped make this exhibit possible.
