About Correlación Contemporánea

Correlación contemporánea is a Peruvian non-profit space dedicated to artistic self- management. One of its objectives is the exchange of experiences among students, young and professional artist, providing a platform for dialogue and conversation to stimulate new ideas and possibilities in the Peruvian art and culture. In addition, Correlación contemporánea aims to promote cultural exchange between national and international artists and craftsmen in order to generate intercultural artistic projects. Within these two lines of work Correlación contemporánea team created the residency programs to continue creating dialogues that connect different artistic expressions with the context.

Chacas Artist-in-residence Program

The residency program “Chacas” is located in the Peruvian Andean mountain and welcomes visual artists, architects and other disciplines; national and international for the period of 3 weeks (21 days) to develop projects related to:

  • Geography: Peruvian Andean Mountains, white range – Cordillera Blanca,
  • Community: Don Bosco artisans, sacred art and Operazione Mato Grosso

Pre Columbian cultures: Chavin, Recuay, Wari. The program aim to create a space for dialogue and exchange to promote production and research in geographical, social and historical aspects of Chacas city and Ancash region.

Location
The residency is located in the Chacas district in the department of Áncash, at 3359 masl and 3 hours from Huaraz by car. Is one of  the most remote evidence of human presence in the Eastern Sierra Ancash, represented by the findings of caves and rock shelters prior to the Chavin culture. The ethnic group that was present in this place after the fall of the Chavin culture was the lordship of Huari.

The city is characterized for having remained unchanged over the original Andean-Andalusian architecture, with narrow streets, houses adorned with double water carved balconies and gates, made by craftsmen Don Bosco. Chacas appears surrounded by mountain ranges and the view of the snowy Ulta and Huascaran. Nowadays, the mixture of Peruvian and Italian work allows Chacas to enjoy an enviable multicultural potential worth knowing.
