ArtNexus shares a video from the Museo de Arte de Lima (MALI) in which the institution's director, Natalia Majluf, its manager Flavio Calda, and curators Sharon Lerner, Ricardo Kusunoki, and Cecilia Pardo, among others, discuss some of their objectives, the collection, the history of the place and part of the museum's revamping process.

According to Curator Sharon Lerner, "MALI is one of the few museums with a current acquisition policy." This allows for the collection to diversify and to be continuously renovating. The collection has approximately 17,000 works that range from pre-Columbian pieces to Peruvian contemporary art. Some of the works are part of the institution's permanent collection that is exhibited in the manner of a chronological walk through the art and culture of Peru.
