Facilitated by Jessi Carnes & Amanda [Ngoho] Reavey, this is a reading & discussion series introducing the work & writing practices of writers in the contemporary literature & arts scene. The series will provide participants an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the work of our visiting writers before those writers arrive at Woodland Pattern.

Our discussion on Saturday, October 17 will focus on Cecilia Vicuña, a poet, visual artist, filmmaker and political activist who addresses pressing concerns of the modern world including ecological destruction, human rights and cultural homogenization. Vicuña has published twenty two art and poetry books, including Kuntur Ko (Tornsound, 2015), Spit Temple (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2012), and Cloud Net (Art in General, 2000). Her art has been exhibited and collected widely at such venues as Tate Gallery, London, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Chile, and MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art in New York. She was appointed Messenger Lecturer 2015 at Cornell University, an honor bestowed on authors who contribute to the "Evolution of Civilization for the special purpose of raising the moral standard of our political, business, and social life."

Vicuña's Woodland Pattern exhibition, No quipu, no book, will open at 3 pm on Saturday, October 31, and a ticketed performance will take place at 7 pm. 

 

Vicuña will also conduct a workshop, A QUIPU OF THOUGHTS FOR THE EARTH, will take place from 12 pm-3 pm on Sunday, November 1. 

 

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Amanda [Ngoho] Reavey:
