Cusco, Peru

August 19, 2022

On August 19th, we opened the Tolerance Poster Show in the courtyard of Museo Machupicchu - Casa Concha in Cusco, Peru.

Museo Machupicchu - Casa Concha is home to the world's largest collection of Machu Picchu artifacts. It was built during the colonial era on the site of Puka Marka, which was the residence of the royal lineage of Tupac Inka Yupanqui. In the main patio, visitors will notice a glass-covered excavation pit revealing the Inca floor, six feet below the present surface.

People in costumes that appear in the photographs are from the Paucartambo dance, a dance that originated in Cusco. Peru is a multicultural country. There are more than 1000 typical and original dances, and each region or city has its traditions. Each dance has a very particular representation and is passed down from generation to generation.

The show was curated by Edinson Cardenas, a member of the Advisory Committee of the Peruvian Design Association- (Lima, Peru). Special thanks to the Steering Committee of the Peruvian Design Association (Cusco Headquarters): Andy Yupanqui, Zinberly Zuniga and Milagros Junco.
