The Lima Art Museum (MALI) and Enel Perú invite the general public to participate in the ENEL Week’s ninth edition, one of the most anticipated events of the year. The event will take place from July 21 to July 30 and offer free cultural activities.
Under the theme “10 días para explorar” (10 Days to Explore), the ENEL Week will be a meeting point for adults and children to imagine, create, innovate and be surprised by art through all the activities offered by the programme.
For ten days, attendees will have FREE access to MALI and will be able to make guided tours (from 11 a. m. to 6 p. m.) to see the great Nasca exhibition. The ENEL Week will hold several activities about this enigmatic and fascinating pre-Hispanic culture, for both children and adults. From 12 p. m. to 5 p. m., there will be creative and educational workshops to motivate learning through games. Participants will take part in the “Soy una Deidad Nasca” (I’m a Nasca Deity) workshop, inspired by Nasca mythical anthropomorphic gods, and they will create their own Nasca tiaras, trumpets and nose ornaments. In addition, there will be a workshop called “Nasca Pop!” to design and print iconography inspired by Elena Izcue’s work.
On the other hand, the museum’s atrium will be the scenario of an outdoor art intervention every day of the event (from 12 p. m. to 5 p. m.); attendees will unleash their creativity by painting and colouring images of Nasca characters on a large scale. All the ENEL Week attendees will also be able to take pictures at the Vive Nasca station, travel in time wearing “unkus” (Nasca shirts) and pose in an environment that recreates the arid desert of the Peruvian south coast.
On Friday 21, the “El mundo desde abajo” (The world from below) workshop will be held (from 10:30 a. m. to 12 m.) as part of the “La lectura es mi Norte” (Reading Is My North) Festival by writer and illustrator Roger Mello. He will make a collective mural with the help of invited artists and visitors.
For its part, the AFP Integra Auditorium will present a film and theatre festival, with free films for all ages and family plays. Theatre tickets for adults will be offered at affordable prices.
As a special activity, the ENEL Night will take place on Friday, July 28, with extended hours until 10 p. m., night visits to the museum and musical performances by Altiplano, narrator Carmen Pachas and the band El Polen.
In addition, attendees will be able to tour the permanent exhibition, which has more than 1,200 pieces narrating 3,000 years of history of Peruvian art, from pre-Columbian to modern. During these days, the MALI Itinerary will be opened (from 10 a. m. to 11 a. m. and from 6 a. m. to 7 p. m.), a self-guided tour highlighting a series of works from the collection related to “art and innovation”.
All experiences can be shared on social networks using the #SemanaEnel hashtag.
Through this project, ENEL seeks to promote access to culture and art, having as an ally one of the most important museums in Latin America: MALI.
