Cecilia Vicuña: Seehearing the Enlightened Failure

Edited with text by Miguel A. López. Introduction by Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy. Text by Dawn Adès, Julia Bryan-Wilson, Lucy Lippard, Carla María Macchiavello, Cecilia Vicuña.

Cecilia Vicuña: Seehearing the Enlightened Failure

A handsomely produced survey of Cecilia Vicuña’s vital, politically infused art from the 1960s to now

This is the first overview of artist, poet and activist Cecilia Vicuña's (born 1948) prolific and influential career. Based in New York and Santiago, Vicuña has created a multidisciplinary ouevre inspired by feminist politics and indigenous art practices.

Seehearing the Enlightened Failure reproduces over 120 artworks by Vicuña from the 1960s to the present, ranging from vibrant figurative paintings to text-based drawings and "precarious" sculptures made of biodegradable materials.

It also features documentation of Vicuña's performances and installations, including her acclaimed quipu series in which she drapes large swaths of knotted raw wool from the ceilings of exhibition spaces as an homage to the Inca record-keeping practice.
