Everything that Sounds in the Forest : Contemporary Art of the Peruvian Amazon

August 17 -

October 21

Exhibition overview

Everything that Sounds in the Forest : Contemporary Art of the Peruvian Amazon, curated by Christian Bendayán (Artist and Independent Researcher of Amazonian Art) and Gabriela Germana (Ph.D. Candidate, Art History Dept., FSU) is a transformative and inclusive exhibition featuring original work from international artists.

The contemporary artists highlighted are interested in traditional and rural aspects of the Peruvian Amazon as well as in the urban and modern environments and deal with topics such nature, myths, people, local customs and knowledge, gender, and social issues.

Amazonian art is not a closed and homogeneous category; rather, at the present is a space for new and multiple explorations by artists coming from different perspectives and places.

​Through a group of pieces that include embroideries, paintings, printings, and photographs, this show seeks to introduce contemporary art about and from the Peruvian Amazon to an American audience.

“The Pensacola Museum of Art is excited to host this dynamic and vibrant exhibition organized by guest curators, Gabriela Germana and Christian Bendayán.” said Amy Bowman-McElhone, assistant vice president of the UWF Historic Trust Museums and the director and chief curator of the Pensacola Museum of Art.
