_Reinterpretando a Cristina Gálvez_, a multidisciplinary exhibition opened by national young artists, will be inaugurated on November 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the Casa Bernando O’Higgins in the central Lima.
This project is the first of three honoring the 100th anniversary of this famous Peruvian artist and sculptor and will be open until December 18.
Born in 1916, Cristina Gálvez’s career took off after participating in an international art program in New York in the early 1950s. Through the 1960s, Gálvez achieved a significant presence in galleries and international exhibitions and began teaching at the Casa Taller de Miraflores.
Into the following decades until her death in 1982, Gálvez influenced a large number of other artists, painters and sculptors.
To further honor her contributions to the Peruvian society, another retrospective exhibition, _Retrospectiva 100 años de Cristina Gálvez_, composed of different pieces from various stages of her life will open on December 1 in the Sala Luis Miró Quesada Garland in Miraflores. It will close January 8.
The last exhibit, _En homenaje a Cristina Gálvez_, opens on December 14 at the Galería Yvonne Sanguineti in Barranco. This showing will include pieces from four of Gálvez’s famous students in the Casa Taller: Sonia Prager, Margarita Checa, Armando Williams and Rhony Alhalel. It will close on January 7.
Entry to all exhibitions is free. There will be multiple collections opening throughout Lima to remember the national artist’s legacy.
