MATE: a cultural centre started by Mario Testino


A native of Lima, multi-talented photographer Mario Testino has always fascinated.

The Peruvian fashion photographer Mario Testino, famous for his Vogue covers and celebrity portraits, has opened a museum and foundation in the gallery and antique district of Barranco. Many of the large format photographs on the walls promote the art and culture of Peru.

The MATE programme also includes an ambitious lecture series and a dynamic program centred on painting and photography. Emerging and established artists Vik Muniz, Julian Schnabel, and Cindy Sherman, to name a few, have been among the invited guests.
