Summary, etc
  • "Beginning and ending at the edge of the ocean at the sacred mouth of the Aconcagua River, About to Happen serves as a lament as well as a love letter to the sea as Chilean-born artist and poet Cecilia Vicuña weaves personal and ancestral memory. About to Happen also traces Vicuña's decades-long practice that has refused categorical distinctions and thrived within the confluences of conceptual art, land art, feminist art, performance and poetry. Her nuanced visual poetics -- operating fluidly between concept and craft, text and textile -- transform the discarded into the elemental, paying acute attention to the displaced, the marginalized and the forgotten. With essays by Andrea Andersson, Macarena Gómez-Barris, and Lucy Lippard, and an interview with the artist by Julia Bryan-Wilson."--Back cover.
  • "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."

A new edition of artist-poet Cecilia Vicu a's artist's book on the politics of the sea

Beginning and ending at the edge of the ocean at the sacred mouth of the Aconcagua River, About to Happen serves as a lament as well as love letter to the sea. In this artist's book, Chilean-born artist and poet Cecilia Vicu a weaves personal and ancestral memory while summoning the collective power to confront the economic disparities and environmental crises of the 21st century.

Collecting the detritus that washes up on shore, Vicu a assembles out of the refuse tiny precarios and basuritas --little sculptures held together with nothing more than string and wire, which she sometimes makes as offerings to be reclaimed by the sea.

About to Happen traces a decades-long practice that has refused categorical distinctions and thrived within the confluences of conceptual art, land art, feminist art, performance and poetry. Vicu a's nuanced visual poetics--operating fluidly between concept and craft, text and textile--transforms the discarded into the elemental, paying acute attention to the displaced, the marginalized and the forgotten.
