In a meditation on togetherness, Chilean artist Cecilia Vicuña invites the public to use wool to wrap themselves as gifts to one another. The artist then weaves everyone into a collective body. The action is followed by an undoing of the weaving and a collective conversation. Conceived in the 1970s, this is the first time the work will be publicly realized.
Domingo 17 de septiembre de 12 a 1:30 p.m.
Meditando sobre la unión, la artista chilena Cecilia Vicuña invita al público a tejerse unos a otros convirtiéndose en regalo de los demás al formar un cuerpo colectivo que luego se desteje dando lugar a una conversación comunal. Concebida en los años setenta, esta obra se realizará en público por primera vez.
