PArC, Perú Arte Contemporáneo 2017
The show will feature 35 premier galleries from 10 countries that will present works of the highest quality, ranging from the early 20th century to contemporary artists. This year’s show, features 6 galleries in the Solo Project Anyone Anywhere, curated by Daniela Perez. The curatorial objective, is to allow for flexibility to invade the guide here proposed as a point of departure from where to approximate this section within the fair: ways of coexisting in the current world. Anyone Anywhere is a space for continuity of preexisting projects, so these can be shared fully while they too, adapt to the specific context of which they are temporarily part of under the Solo Projects for PArC.
PArC will present a series of talks in its Auditorium. Curated by Miguel Lopez, the Auditorium promotes discussion about the changing dynamics of artistic production, art history and research, art publications and art collecting. The sessions will also be discussing the ever-changing active role of education inside the different institutions and museums of the continent, as well as a sneak preview of the curatorial proposals for the 32 Sao Paulo Biennial titled “Incerteza Viva.” Lastly, the Auditorium will pay homage to Peruvian artists Teresa Burga (1935), who during the 1960s was a key player in the Peruvian art scene by putting women’s bodies in the center of the debate. Miguel A. López is a writer, researcher and Curator in chief of TEOR / ethics, San José, Costa Rica. His work investigates collaborative dynamics and the transformations in the ways of understanding and doing politics in Latin America in recent decades, and the feminist re-articulations of history from a South perspective.
