Artist Talk | Kukuli Velarde
Join the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art on Saturday, May 14 at 2 p.m. for an artist talk featuring Kukuli Velarde in conversation with our director Katie Hirsch on the occasion of Velarde’s exhibition CORPUS. The event is free admission, and the conversation will take place both in-person and live stream at halsey.cofc.edu/live. The Halsey Institute will exhibit Peruvian American artist Kukuli Velarde’s CORPUS project in its entirety for the first time. CORPUS is comprised of ceramic and fabric works that encourage reflection on the meaning of survival in the face of colonialism. Fifteen ceramic sculptures, each with matching tapestries, will be presented in a symbolic representation of the annual Corpus Christi festival in Cusco, Perú.
