Summary "Cecilia Vicuña: About to Happen traces the artist's long career to stage a conversation about discarded and displaced people, places, and things in a time of global climate change. The first major U.S. solo exhibition of the influential Chilean-born artist is comprised of Vicuña's multidisciplinary work in performance, sculpture, drawing, video, text, and site-specific installations over the course of the past 40 years. Reframing dematerialization as both a formal consequence of 1960s conceptualism and radical climate change-the exhibition examines a process that shapes public memory and responsibility. Operating fluidly between concept and craft, text and textile, Vicuña's practice weaves together disparate disciplines as well as communities-with shared relationships to land and sea, and to the economic and environmental disparities of the 21st century."
