Cesar Cornejo

London, United Kingdom


Peruvian,   —   My work explores the relationship between art, architecture and society. I have been influenced by having lived and worked in four different cultures: Peru, Japan, England and USA, having each of them influenced his way of thinking and working. I work in several media including; sculpture, installation, painting, drawing, photography and performance. I produce multi-layered pieces that while addressing issues that may refer to his native Peru, are also open to broader interpretations. I am the founder of the project Puno Museum of Contemporary Art (Puno MoCA), an alternative museum model which places community at its center. I have participated in exhibitions such as Art Positions, London Art Fair 2020, California Pacific Triennial 2017, XII Havana Biennial, Busan Biennial 2008, Art Positions at Art Basel Miami 2011, the Biennial S-Files Museo del Barrio, NY, and V Biennial Barro de America, Venezuela and has received awards and residencies from the Fulbright Commission, Creative Capital Foundation, Bellagio Center - Rockefeller Foundation, The Brown Foundation Fellows Program at Dora Maar House, The Howard Foundation, Sharpe Walentas Studio Program, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Art Omi International Artists Residency, British Council and the Ministry of Education of Japan and the Vermont Studio Center among others. I received a MA and PhD in Fine Arts from the Tokyo University of the Arts and bachelor degree and professional license in architecture from the Ricardo Palma University in Lima Peru. I am epresented by Gallery Ed Cross Fine Art and am Senior Lecturer at the Manchester School of Art of the Manchester Metropolitan University.
