The National Council of Culture and Arts Chile is pleased to announce that artist Cecilia Vicuña will participate in documenta 14. Documenta, now in its 14th edition, consists of two venues: Athens, Greece and Kassel, Germany where it originated sixty years ago. The poet and visual artist Cecilia Vicuña and the project Open City of Ritoque were selected by the curator of the exhibition, Dieter Roelstraete, to be part of this edition.

Vicuña, who started her career in the 1960s, was co-founder of the Tribu No group and has lived in New York since 1980. Throughout her career she has developed a body of work in which she addresses political, environmental and various issues of modern life through poetry, visuals and performance, in order to generate a connection between art and life, the ancestral and the vanguard.
