The University of Toronto Art Centre presents a brilliant collection of Peruvian artifacts in the acclaimed exhibition Luminescence: The Silver of Peru. Supported by contributing sponsors Pan American Silver Corp, The Patronato Plata del Perú and The Silver Institute, the display traces the history of silver in Peruvian culture and the recurring fascination with the metal’s divine qualities today. Most of the 140 national treasures have never been shown outside Peru and it is the largest collection of Peruvian silver to come to Canada. Works include jewelry, utilitarian objects, paintings, crowns, art pieces and masks spanning 2,500 years of Peruvian history. The exhibition is curated by UBC Museum of Anthropology Director, Dr. Anthony Shelton in collaboration with the Patronato Plata del Peru.
