A Tongue Within Tongues

October 20, 2009 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Reception at 6pm Performance at 6:30-7:30pm

In her poetry performances Cecilia Vicuña creates a space for silence and transformation. Words, sounds and the audience are woven into new sensory perceptions. Playing with many languages as she reads and chants she transforms her texts as she goes, incorporating the present moment.

The exhibition and events have been organized by the Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series, a program of the Institute for Women and Art (IWA) in partnership with the Rutgers University Libraries. The IWA operates as a center of the Office of the Associate Vice President for Academic & Public Partnerships in the Arts & Humanities. Series co-sponsors include: Associate Alumnae of Douglass College, Brodsky Center for Innovative Editions, Center for Latin American Studies, Global Initiatives (2009-10 theme “Ecologies in the Balance? Thinking Through the Crisis”), Institute for Research on Women, Office of the Dean of Douglass Residential College and Douglass Campus, The Feminist Art Project, Women and Gender Studies Department, and the Women Artists Archives National Directory. These events are made possible in part by funds from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.


The Institute for Women and Art welcomes all visitors with disabilities. Please contact the IWA for further details and information regarding accommodation of specific needs at: or 732-932-3726.
