2015 Arte in Situ takes over Ricardo Palma Cultural Center


It’s not everyday that artists, or enthusiastic creators, get the chance to create anything they want about any topic they want, for a chance to win a space for their own exhibition as well as cash prizes.

The third edition of Arte in Situ is calling for precisely that.

The 2015 Arte in Situ is a project calling on all artists in Peru to participate in a contest open to all genres of visual arts. Participants are asked to propose anything they want from sculptures, painting, and photography, among others, in the lobby and foyer of the Ricardo Palma Cultural Center located on Larco Avenue of Miraflores, Lima.

The project will award two artists who most creatively use the dynamic space provided in the lobby and foyer of the Ricardo Palma Cultural Center. Arte in Situ 2015 wants to see innovative and barrier-breaking ideas coming from the projects. They want projects that challenge conventional perspectives on the relationship between art and the surrounding environment.

Projects will be accepted until June 1, participation is free, participants can enter individually or in groups by sending in projects ranging from paintings, sculpture, photography, among other media, surrounding any topic.

The results will be determined by an expert jury and announced on June 5. Two winners will take home S/. 2,500 each and present their projects in an open exhibition from June 23-July 23.
