MOCA Moving Images: PARACAS

TAGS: Museum Art Special Event Film Museum
Wednesday 1/22

MOCA North Miami is presenting presents a screening of Cecilia Vicuña's 1983 film, PARACAS. In the film, Vicuña animates a 2000-year-old pre-Columbian textile created in the Paracas/Nazca region of Perú. Figures from the ancient textile come to life to perform an imagined ancient ritual in a miniature world created by the artist, set in the poetic universe of a desert transformed into a garden by its ancient inhabitants. Original music was composed and performed by José Pérez de Arce and Claudio Mercado, with chants by Vicuña. The original Paracas textile is in the collection of the Brooklyn Museum.

Following the film, Dr. Constantino Manuel Torres will speak on the topic of on anthropology, shamanism, and the pre-Colombian Paracas culture of the Atacama Desert. Dr. Constantino Manuel Torres has conducted research on the connection between iconography and visionary plant use in ancient cultures of the South Central Andes since 1982.
