Cecilia Vicuña, Ricardo Gallo and Carla Macchiavello
In the Spirit of Commonality
Géza, 306 Maujer
The first iteration of Open Exchange takes the shape of a three-way conversation between artist and poet Cecilia Vicuña, musician Ricardo Gallo, and art historian Carla Macchiavello. They weave together an improvisation in sound, no-language, thoughts, and words. While they have overlapped creatively in multiple ways over the past decade, this auspicious meeting brings these three artists and thinkers together as collaborators. Their many shared stories in their common paths of living and working in New York, Colombia, and Chile sheds light on a quest for communal knowledge that is at the heart of Andean cultures and that may provide a key for action in the face of current ecological and social crises. In the spirit of open exchange, this event is an invitation to dialogue and listening.
This is the first in a series of conversations and performances by Cecilia Vicuña and Ricardo Gallo taking place during 2021 and 2022.
This is an in-person event. Free and open to the public.
