Peruvian artist Sandra Gamarra´s Good Government and the Decolonial Turn

By Martin Macdonald Good Government  at  Sala Alcalá 31  in the Spanish capital is a poignant exercise in decolonisation from Lima-born, Madrid-based artist  Sandra Gamarra . Curated by Valencian art historian Agustín Pérez Rubio , the exhibition features Gamarra´s new and recent pieces alongside crafts by native Peruvian artisans as well as paintings dating back to the Viceroyalty of Peru. In line with decolonial curatorial practices that explore coloniality´s structural forms of privilege and bias,  Good Government  also questions hispanicity, museological display, the avant-garde and hegemonic history.
