Cecilia Vicuña in A Kingdom of Hours

23 June–4 September 2016 

In the early 1970s, the poet and artist Cecilia Vicuña (b. 1948, Santiago de Chile) made a series of paintings “that critically explore the patriarchal iconography of international socialism and reinterpret Andean cultural symbols.” One of these early paintings is included in the current exhibition at Gasworks, A Kingdom of Hours, co-curated by Robert Leckie (curator, Gasworks) and Miguel A. López (chief curator, TEOR/éTica).
