Olga Engelmann
(b. Lima Peru).

Engelmann has begun to question the position of the artist, inserting herself into the world of art criticism and the art market as a contemporary hybrid of art, fashion design and handicrafts. At the same time, she works to reinterpret deeply ingrained references to popular culture and Andean religion: The ancestral carnivals of the city of Puno appear in Photoshop and videoclips.

Here recent exhibitions include: Folk, El Sol, Miraflores, Peru, 2005; Armario, ARTCO Galería de Arte, Lima, 2003; XXX Salón, Instituto Cultural Peruano Norteamericano, 2002; Muestra del VI Concurso de Artes Plásticas Fundación Telefónica, Lima, 2002. Her upcoming shows include a solo show at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Cusco, Peru, 2006.

In this 2005 interview, curator Viviana Usubiaga speaks to the artist about her interest in contemporary and historic textiles and weaving.
