Amazonía

Curated by Gredna Landolt

The contemporary art section of the Amazonía exhibits renowned artists from indigenous peoples.

 

What the eyes do not see

This section deals with the multiverse inhabited by beings that protect nature, guardian spirits that protect it from being depredated by men. They cannot be seen with the naked eye, but they manifest in different ways, interacting with people to maintain the necessary balance for life.

 

Participating artists: Chonon Bensho, Lastenia Canayo, David Díaz, Dimas Paredes, Gerardo Petsaín, Brus Rubio Churay, Roldán Pinedo (Shoyan Shëca), Frank Soria, Elena Valera (Bahuan Jisbë), Celia Vásquez, Santiago and Rember Yahuarcani. The Awajún potters Dina and Eufemia Mujat, Julia Daichap, Luzmila Ajikui, Rosa Chimpa and Julia Apikai. The exhibition includes large-format pieces by renowned Shipibo potters.
