MARCHES OF FAITH
PROCESSIONS IN PERU
The exhibition MARCHES OF FAITH. Processions in Peru offers visitors the chance to explore a religious manifestation with deepseated cultural origins that can be found throughout nearly all of Peru. Processions take on a variety of forms, serving to exteriorize a faith whose roots are intertwined with a range of expressions of our living culture, including art forms such as music and dance, indirectly harkening backthrough the rich and complex tapestry of syncretism— to our pre-Hispanic past.
This temporary exhibition coincides with Lent, the period leading up to Holy Week, which in turn anticipates some of the most fervent and well-attended processions in the Catholic religious calendar.
This exhibition will later be added to the permanent collections that form part of the Convent of Santa Catalina’s cultural heritage, thus reaffirming our ceaseless efforts to renovate and highlight new spaces in the convent. A new room has been fitted out specifically to house this exhibition, starting in May.
This temporary display, on the other hand, is part of our policy of openness, through which we seek to provide more and more spectators with a chance to take in the Convent’s attractions.
