More Art Honors Cecilia Vicuña & Kohler Co.
More Art is thrilled to honor Cecilia Vicuña (b. 1947, Santiago, Chile) an artist known for compelling work that explores themes of ecological destruction, human rights, and cultural homogenization, with a concentration on language and memory and how they relate to exile and decay. She has created art in a variety of forms ranging from poetry to sculpture. Her work Disappeared Quipo is currently on view at Brooklyn Museum. Vicuña is represented by Lehman Maupin Gallery in New York.
Founded in 1873 in Kohler, Wisconsin, Kohler Co. is one of America’s oldest and largest privately held companies. It has a long history of excellence and innovation, deep appreciation for the arts, and steadfast commitment to make a positive impact on the world. The company leverages its talent and resources to develop innovative, practical and low-cost solutions to the global water crisis. In addition to sustainability efforts, Kohler has partnered with the John Michael Kohler Arts Center to offer an Arts residency program, through which more than 550 artists have created artwork from inside Kohler’s factories in tandem with skilled craftspeople.
