FUGAZ Art of Coexisting presents Foto Monumental 2016 to take place from August 13 to September 13 within the framework of the photography week in Lima. This event will be held thanks to different alliances with private companies, art, and the community.
Foto Monumental is the result of an investigation carried out by Sonia Cunliffe (Director of Fugaz), Andrés Marroquín Winkelmann (Director of the Meier Ramirez publishing house), Santiago Roose (Director of the Contemporary Photography Program of Corriente Alterna) and Roberto Huarcaya (Director of the Center from image).
This festival will present 4 major exhibitions around photography in its various applications, from the historical record to contemporary art.
RIKIO SUGANO 1923-1924
Premio Luces 2016: Mejor Muestra de Fotografía Internacional
The Jan Mulder collection in loan with the Image Center presents the negatives of the “Japanese Immigrants” collection, which have a great documentary and artistic value that highlight the Peruvian-Japanese relationship of the early 1920s. As part of the images are portraits of the Japanese community in Peru (children and adults), shots of sporting events, monuments, archaeological sites, factories, work centers, squares, views of Lima and the north coast. The background includes an important series of negatives in which Rikio Sugano, a Japanese adventurer who visited Peru from 1923 to 1924, is portrayed.
