Ana Maria Hernando: When the Women Sing

October 1, 2010–January 15, 2011

Kemper at the Crossroads

see current exhibition gallery see upcoming exhibitions    

This Argentinean artist’s work is inspired by her visits to a remote village in the mountains of Peru, where the women sing ancient songs in Quechua. The exhibition includes installation works, created from colorful Peruvian hand-crocheted petticoats, as well as cut-paper drawings inspired by the shape of flowers and using the petal-shaped remains from die-cut prints created while working with master printer Bud Shark of Shark’s Ink. Now based in Boulder, Colorado, Hernando will be an artist in residence at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art.

Listen to a Kemper ARTcast related to the exhibition.
