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.
A partial list of museums that have exhibited her work includes: The Museu de Arte Moderna do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de Santiago; The Institute of Contemporary Arts London; The Whitney Museum of American Art; and MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art in New York.
