REVIEW | Futurismo Ancestral : An Offering to Peru

Watch our last visit to Somerset House to see the exhibition Futurismo Ancestral : An Offering to Peru  by Barcelona-born graffiti artist Sixe Paredes’ ode to Peruvian and Andean aesthetics to its underground spaces in late May for his first major solo show in the UK.

Working on all senses – sight and sound as much as taste and touch – Futurismo Ancestral: An Offering to Peru by Sixe Paredes was an all-encompassing exhibition experience with free daily, interactive events on all aspects of Peruvian and Andean culture from food and film, to music and performance, hosted alongside large-scale artworks from tapestries to totems crafted by Sixe Paredes (formerly known as Sixeart).

Hidden underneath the neoclassical courtyard, the bowels of the building became awash with vibrant and vivid colours, a spectacle set against the classic Portland stone work of Somerset House.  Within this unique space for one week only, Sixe was resident with an exhibition that represents the richness of the Peruvian and Andean art world and a lively line-up of events that capture the soul and spirit of contemporary Peruvian and Andean culture.
