From the collection of Carlos Marsano.

Carlos Marsano (Peru) when he started to collect initially focused on Pre-Columbian art. Later, in 2003, when he was living in Brazil, he became engaged with and began collecting contemporary art. As he likes to see the evolution of the artists over time, his collection focuses on young and emerging artists.

Carlos is the co-founder of Artus, a new platform in Peru to support local artist through residency programmes abroad. He is part of the contemporary art Acquisition Committee at MALI, Peru and is a member of the International Leadership Council at the New Museum in New York.
