Performance and Conversation with Artist Cecilia V...

Presented by Museum of Contemporary Art at Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA)

10:00 a.m.: Performance by Cecilia Vicuña in Main Gallery

Participatory improvisational performance by the artist, the creation of a living quipu. Inspired by the ancient Andean tradition of “talking knots,” the living quipu will celebrate tactile knowledge and interconnections across the cosmos. This performance is a dynamic form of storytelling in which unspun wool and language weave a vibrant matrix of connections and possibility.

10:45 a.m.: Conversation with the Artist

Cecilia Vicuña and exhibition co-curators Andrea Andersson, The Helis Foundation Chief Curator of Visual Arts at the CAC and Julia Bryan-Wilson, Professor, University of California, Berkeley will unpack ideas and contexts informing the artist’s process through a conversation in MOCA’s Pavilion Gallery.
