‘When it Rains, We Harvest’ / ‘Cuando Llueve, Cosechamos’: El Niño and Abundance in a Peruvian Fishing Community

Coming to the Scottish Fisheries Museum in March 2022, this exhibition will explore how the desert communities of northern Peru have adapted to the impact of El Niño, the shifting band of warm ocean found on the Pacific coast of South America.

Blending archaeological evidence from the Moche and Chimu cultures, modern-day objects from Peruvian fishing communities, and contemporary artwork by Scottish artist Frances Law, ‘When it Rains, We Harvest’ is a timely study of community, heritage, climate change and fishing.

Curated by Museum and Galleries Studies students at the University of St Andrews. Visit the exhibition website for more information and links to the research underpinning this display.
