Morgana Vargas Llosa, Jaime Travezán y David Tortora

Galería del Centro Cultural Peruano Norteamericano. c/Melgar 109, Arequipa
10 December 2016 - 31 January 2017
From Monday to Friday between 10am and 8pm, and Saturdays from 9am until 12:45

This exhibition, comprising 50 portraits, is the result of the work created by the photographers Jaime Travezán and Morgana Vargas Llosa, with the artistic collaboration of David Tortora. On this show the visitor can appreciate the cultural, ethnical and religious diversity of different "limeño" families. Looking at the pictures you can see how occupations, life styles, religions and ethnicity varied from one family to another, and how even the concept of family can be perceived as a very open thing. This project aims to increase awareness and respect between different communities, inviting people to get to know each other within a positive and optimistic context.

“Mírame Lima” has received a number of awards, such as the PDN Award or the SEE ME Award, both in 2013, and several of the pictures from the show have been exhibited at the prestigious National Portrait Gallery from London, as part of the Taylor Wessing Prize.

From 8 December. From Mondays to Saturdays from 8:30 to 20:30h

Miguel EN Cervantes, in the year of the IV Centenary of the death of the writer, aims to bring Miguel de Cervantes closer to contemporary readers, through eight of his short plays that can be found on his work El retablo de las maravillas, a book with an important autobiographical element on which the author looks into the dichotomy reality / fiction.

This project, curated by the team from "i con i", uses a language that is transversal to all periods: illustration. With David Rubín and Miguelanxo Prado, two prominent illustrators and graphic novelists from Spain, that using text and images create an strong dialogue between comic and illustration, between El retablo de las maravillas and fascinating episodes from the life of Cervantes.
