Living Poem with IAS Spring Distinguished Speaker Cecilia Vicuña
Living Poem with IAS Spring Distinguished Speaker Cecilia Vicuña
WhenTuesday, Apr. 16, 2019, 6 – 8 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public. RSVP requested>> 

In this performance lecture, Cecilia Vicuña speaks, chants and tells stories of her experience coming across the destruction of poetry in the land. To experience one of Vicuña’s oral performances is to both feel and hear the chasms of all your previous understandings gently opening as she threads physical gestures, singing, chants and vocalisations of multiple languages into a space; a poem.

The artist’s first U.S. solo exhibition, Cecilia Vicuña: About to Happen, opens at the Henry Art Gallery on the UW Seattle Campus on April 27. Related programs include a public opening on April 26 and a performance and conversation with the artist on April 27. Learn more at
