British Museum’s exhibition to explore ancient cultures of Peru

The British Museum on Tuesday announced that it will stage a major exhibition on ancient cultures of Peru titled “Peru: A Journey in Time,” which will run from November 11, 2021 to February 20, 2022.

“We are excited to announce our next special exhibition on the remarkable history of Peru,” the museum posted on Twitter.

“Step into the vibrant world of Peru and discover how people have thrived for millennia in one of the most complex and challenging environments on the planet,” reads the exhibition’s description.

Supported by Peru’s Exports and Tourism Promotion Board (PromPeru) and organized along with the Lima Art Museum (MALI), the showing marks the South American country’s bicentennial year of independence.

According to the London-based museum, this art display highlights the history, beliefs, and cultural achievements of the different peoples who lived in Peru from around 2500 BC to the arrival of Europeans in the 1500s, and their legacy in the centuries that followed.

‘A Journey in Time’ will encourage visitors to discover how past cultures —from Peru’s early indigenous peoples to the ill-fated Inca— were shaped by the diverse landscapes of the central Andes, flourishing at some of the highest altitudes and in some of the driest deserts on earth.

In addition, museumgoers will be able to find out how the above-mentioned cultures developed unique approaches to time, agriculture, economy, and power, some of which endure today.

The exhibition features objects from the British Museum’s collection, including ceramics, precious metals, textiles, and ritual paraphernalia, as well as extraordinary pieces borrowed from Peru itself.

Striking, large-scale photography and videos of iconic sites, including the Nazca geoglyphs and Machu Picchu, will also be displayed as part of this collection.

All these elements will give visitors a vivid sense of place and an appreciation of the artistic and architectural prowess of ancient Andean cultures.
