Visiting Artist Lecture: Kukuli Velarde @ 107, South Kedzie Hall | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

The ceramics, paintings, and drawing installations of Peruvian artist Kukuli Velarde are inspired by pre-Colombian figures and reveal folk tradition, evoke histories of ornament and craft, and disrupt aesthetic hierarchies. Velarde’s work references the struggles of indigenous populations as a result of European colonization. Velarde has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Pollock Krasner Grant.
