Kenebo: Mapping the Shipibo-konibo eco-cosmology
Luis Miro Quesada Garland Galery
Art builds identity. As well as the rivers that form new courses with the passage of time, Amazonian art has found new ways of portraying diverse worldviews, which, although different in styles and formats, share the same source of inspiration: nature.
The exhibition “Kenebo: Cartography of Shipibo-Konibo eco-cosmology”, thus addresses this ecological perspective of art, based on the work of 18 Amazonian artists, including Agustina Valera, Oliver Agustín, Olinda Silvano, Wilma Maynas, Silvia Ricopa, Chonon Bensho, Lastenia Canayo, Sara Flores, Deysi Ramírez, Luis Martínez, Fredy Tuanama, Elena Valera, Harry Pinedo, Roldán Pinedo, Ronin Koshi, Jaqui Loa, Venuca Evanán and Harry Chávez.
It is an exhibition of paintings, textiles, ceramics, murals and other innovative formats with a special style and colors typical of Amazonian art. This exhibition was curated by the Iquiteño artist Christian Bendayán.
