In several rooms, Mali presents exhibitions organized periodically. An important part of the exhibitions are the pre-Columbian pieces. This period of approximately 3000 years produced the cultures of the Incas, Chavín, Moche, Nazca and others.
Textiles, ceramics and goldsmith’s works will be exhibited. In fact, these objects have gained their status as art only in the last centuries. In the cultures that produced them, they were mainly basic products or served for religious purposes and as funerary goods.
Another important ingredient is the art of the colonial era. Because with European colonization came European influences to Peru for the first time and were reflected in the visual arts. In addition, painting became the instrument for the Christianization of the indigenous population of Peru.
