Erosion and Dissolution of the Object: Peruvian Art of the 1960s - Miguel Lopez

Open Lecture

In collaboration with Emilio Tarazona, artist Miguel López López (Lima, 1983) has researched and curated a series of exhibitions retrieving ephemeral art practices in Peru of the 1960s/70s. López is now working towards a collectively curated exhibition investigating experimental and conceptual art practices under conditions set by military dictatorships and communist regimes in both Europe and Latin America.

For the TrAIN Open series, López will focus on experimental exhibitions of Peruvian art in the 1960s – and he aims to draw a wider discussion concerning experimental art in the political context of sixties Latin America.
