Description

A series of thirty-nine embroidered and appliquéd fabric artworks (cuadros) of varying sizes and themes created by two women’s cooperatives in Peru, celebrating women, faith and creativity as a force for transformation.

Cuadros are embroidered and appliqued fabric pictures created by women of Compacto Humano and Manos Anchashinas, two art cooperatives located in Pamplona Alta, a shantytown situated on the outskirts of Lima, Peru. This project, which in part, evolved into this exhibition, features the work of these women, placing emphasis on them as artists and the way their art reflects creativity, resilience, and hope despite the harsh conditions of their lives.

Picturing Paradise is the result of three separate research trips undertaken by curator Rebecca Berru Davis (LMU ’75) that include three different commissioned art projects.
