Three exhibitions on Peruvian culture, Machu Picchu 100 Years' Global Disclosure, Jose Maria Arguedas Centennial 1911-2011 and Sculptor Martin Salazar, are being held in Beijing from Sept 16-25 to mark the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Peru. They are sponsored by the Ministry of Culture of China and the Embassy of the Republic of Peru to China.

Machu Picchu features the fascinating Inca civilization in South America, and was designated a world cultural heritage site by UNESCO in 1983.

Born in 1911 in Peru, Jose Maria Arguedas is an expert on Inca civilization, and has been called the "Father of Peru Liberationists". Martin Salazar is one of the most well-known sculptors in Peru, who received his master's degree at Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing and now divides his time between the Chinese capital and Paris.
