Library Shelf Location 18.NETO
Publication Date 2016
Description

Aru Kuxipa expresses the vision and dream of the Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto and the Amazonian artists, plant masters, and pajes (shamans) of the thirty-seven Jordao Huni Kuin communities to co-create a place of transformation, a zone of encounter and expression, and a site of healing away from their ancestral lands. Sanctioned by a communal decision to come to Vienna and to perform and share within the space of art the Huni Kuin's sacred forms of expression, art, ritual, and knowledge, the exhibition traces luminous trajectories into our 'ancestral futures.' This encounter forged under the sign of the Huni Kuin's Novo Mundo / Novo Tempo calls for a renewed engagement with and contribution to the world at large, a time of exchange, and a striving for indigenous self-governance and sovereignty.
