I might have seeing Natalia Majluf in one of my several visits to the Museo de Arte de Lima while I was a middle-school student in Lima. MALI is an excellent place to visit while in Lima: its main building is a beautiful example of republican neo-classic style architecture; the surrounding park is a space dedicated to outdoors cultural events; and most importantly its collection is a great display of contemporary and colonial Peruvian art, and also of the art of the Indigenous peoples that predated Peru and which has left a strong influence of our today's Peruvian traditions.
MALI is without doubt the most important museum of art of Lima and this event promises to be a very interesting learning experience.

“Public or Private?
Cultural Institutions in Latin America:
the Case of the Museo de Arte de Lima"
Through a case study of the work undertaken by the Museo de Arte de Lima, this lecture will address issues that arise from the public/private dichotomy which defines cultural administration in Latin America.
This museum is a private non-profit cultural institution which is undertaking a major renovation of its infrastructure. The talk will also offer a general overview of the museum’s work to expand its collection so as to better represent the history of Peruvian art.
Dr. Natalia Majluf is a specialist in 19th century Peruvian art, and has organized many exhibitions on both historic and contemporary Peruvian art. She has been head curator (1995-1999) and acting director (2000-2001) at the Museo de Arte de Lima, and was appointed director in 2002.
