80m2 Livia Benavides is an art gallery specialized in Latin American conceptual art. The gallery opened in 2012 in Lima as a response to a scarce infrastructure for the arts. From there on, the gallery has focused on developing critical discourses on contemporary issues. We are interested in showing a plurality of voices, practices and aesthetics focused on political, environmental and social reflection.
By promoting the works of historical, established and emerging artists, we intend to solidify contemporary discourses and explorations. The gallery strives to build bridges between the local and international contributing to an interchange that goes beyond borders. 80m2 Livia Benavides advocates for unconventional exhibition spaces that transcend the white box experience with the intent to reach a broader spectrum of the community and to rethink exhibition venues.
