an art show a week | week 2: MATE, Museo Mario Testino

January 17, 2018 Lima, Perú

Después de estar encerrada una semana con una gripa del mal, decidí que esta semana les voy a contar un poco del MATE, Museo Mario Testino que visité apenas en noviembre del año pasado. // After being home for a week recovering from a cold from hell, I've decided this week I'll tell you about the Mario Testino Museum, which I visited just a few months ago. 

Week 2: MATE, Museo Mario Testino
Where: Lima, Perú
Admission: 5 Soles (Regular - S.10)
Visited: November, 2017
Came to see: Permanent Collection
Favourite Artwork: Loved a mirrored room with multiple projections on the sides.

Liz, mi nueva amiga Peruana y mi papá me acompañaron en la aventura, y aunque no estaba muy convencido al principio, mi señor padre terminó sorprendido de la cantidad de gente que Testino ha retratado y todas las imágenes de él que ha visto sin saber que eran suyas. // A Peruvian friend and my father joined me in this adventure. He was kind of skeptical about coming with me but in the end he was gladly surprised to see all the people Testino has photographed and all of the pictures he's seen without knowing were his. 


Here the proof of his surprise





Loved this video-installation!

En el segundo piso se encuentra una sala con retratos de gente portando trajes típicos de diferentes partes de Perú y la sala dedicada a los famosos retratos de Diana y una réplica del vestido que utilizó durante la sesión de fotos. // On the second floor there's a room with portraits of people wearing typical costumes from different regions of Peru, and of course, also a room with the famous portraits of Diana and a replica of the dress she wore during the photo shoot. 




Y en la exposición temporal, ésta fue mi sala favorita.  // This was my favourite room from the temporary exhibits.

El museo en realidad es pequeño y se puede recorrer en una hora, aprox. Está en el distrito de Barranco, en el que hay varios restaurantes y atracciones turísticas que visitar antes o después de ir al MATE. // The museum is actually rather small and can easily be seen within an hour. It's located in the Barranco district, and there's plenty of restaurants and touristic attractions to visit before or after going to the MATE.
