Cecilia Vicuña Retrospective at Lehmann Maupin

La India Contaminada, featuring work by Cecilia Vicuña at Lehmann Maupin NY, will be opening this Saturday, May 19th. Vicuña is a Chilean-born artist and has exhibited widely throughout the United States and abroad for over three decades. This exhibition will mark the first comprehensive survey of her work in New York.

La India Contaminada includes Vicuña's raw wool installation and sculpture Quipu, mixed-media sculptures referred to as Lo Precario, video, and painting. This work spans from 1969 to 2017, and is concurrent with a solo exhibition of Disappeared Quipu at the Brooklyn Museum (opening May 18) which includes her early performance and photographic work, all within the museum's traveling exhibition Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960 - 1985 (which was on view at the Hammer Museum last September - December, 2017).
