Event Description


 Join us for a performance by the acclaimed Chilean artist and poet Cecilia Vicuña and the Colombian pianist and composer Ricardo Gallo. Vicuña’s interdisciplinary practice combines poetry, drawing, sculpture, filmmaking, and activism. This event showcases her extended collaboration with Gallo—together, they have created original songs and poems that combine indigenous influences and contemporary voices of the Andean region. 

A conversation with the artists and a reception will follow. Seating is limited and reservations are required. See Museum website for details.


With pleasure, the Art Museum announces that acclaimed Chilean artist Cecilia Vicuña will be on campus this coming week April 9 – 11th as the 2018 Elson International Artist in Residence. Poet, artist, filmmaker and activist, Vicuña has been a leading figure in the Latin American avant garde since the mid-1960s.  Her work has been collected and exhibited internationally; she recently drew attention for her installations at Documenta 14, 2017 and as part of the exhibition Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960-1985 as part of the Pacific Standard Time Initiative.

Vicuña will be joined by the Colombian pianist and composer Ricardo Gallo for a collaborative performance that is the central event of her residency – an special opportunity to experience her multilingual, musical, poetic and performance based practice. We warmly welcome your attendance for this Performance and Conversation at the Art Museum on Tuesday, April 10th, 2018 at 5:30pm – the event is ticketed
