“Cecilia Vicuña: Water Writing: Anthological Exhibition 1966-2009”

This exhibition of work by Chilean-born artist Cecilia Vicuña is the first US anthological review of her works. The artist presents new works in many media, including a large site specific installation created for the Douglass Library galleries, new videos, wall drawings and works created in Chile, London, Colombia and the United States. Renowned for her “precarious” installations in nature, which address ecological issues, Vicuña bridges the space between art and poetry, and integrates multiple media in her work. Her visual language speaks to the past and the future by exploring parallels between the ancient indigenous worldview of the Americas and the worldview of particle physicists which includes concepts of entanglement and the multiverse.

Gallery Hours:  M-Th 8:30 am – 7pm; Friday 8:30 am – 4 pm; Weekends by Appointment
