Enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee and join Isabelle Lynch, Penn History of Art PhD candidate, for a conversation about Cecilia Vicuña’s ICA exhibition About to Happen. The discussion will focus on a close reading of a selection of Cecilia Vicuña’s poems, calligrams, and textile works. Participants will consider the interconnections of weaving and writing in the artist’s work and think about the political and poetic significance of Vicuña’s use of knotted threads in relation to Andean systems of knowledge production.
