Critical Dialogue Series: Cecilia Vicuña, The 2020 Jack Wolgin Annual Visiting Artist
Attention Tyler and Temple students: Tyler welcomes Cecilia Vicuña, the 2020 Jack Wolgin Annual Visiting Artist, for a public conversation. Vicuña’s work as a poet, artist, filmmaker and activist addresses pressing concerns of the modern world, including ecological destruction, human rights and cultural homogenization. Her multi-dimensional works begin as a poem, an image that morphs into a film, a song, a sculpture or a collective performance. These ephemeral, site-specific installations in nature, streets and museums combine ritual and assemblage. This event is part of Tyler’s Critical Dialogue Series.
The Jack Wolgin Annual Visiting Artist Symposium is supported by the Wolgin Endowment at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture.
