Cecilia Vicuña: About to Happen

About to happen: come one, come all! Today I’ll be speaking about Vicuña’s work, her threads and her installations, which weave our humanity back to our precarious, fragile skins.

The exhibition runs through October 14th, 2018 at  bampfa.berkeley.edu

Third Thursdays at BAMPFA is provided by the Center for the Arts and Religion, at the Graduate Theological Union. Here is a word from their page:

“Every Third Thursday of the month, receive a complimentary ticket to the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive and hear a short talk by a GTU faculty member on an exhibition or artwork. The first event of the semester, held on September 20, will be lead by GTU doctoral candidate and CARe Student Advisory Board member Yohana Junker, who will discuss the exhibition "Cecilia Vicuña: About to Happen".

Graduate Theological Union students, staff, faculty, and friends are all welcome. BAMPFA is located at 2155 Center Street, between Oxford Street and Shattuck Avenue, in downtown Berkeley | bampfa.berkeley.edu
