Sebastián Calfuqueo Aliste portrait

Sebastián Calfuqueo Aliste, a contemporary Mapuche artist from Chile, uses ceramics, installations, performances and video art to reflect critically on the Mapuche subject’s social, cultural and political status. Calfuqueo’s art explores cultural similarities and differences as well as stereotypes produced at the intersection of indigenous and western ways of thinking. Sebastián Calfuqueo will be with us for a week of workshops, performances, reflections, project support and exploration.

Sebastián Calfuqueo Aliste was the first artist in residency hosted by the K’acha Willaykuna Andean and Amazonian Indigenous Arts and Humanities Collaboration. This collaboration was an interdisciplinary Global Arts and Humanities Discovery Theme initiative committed to critical engagement with Indigenous cultures of Abya Yala (the Guna denominator for the American continent in its entirety).


These events were co-sponsored by the Global Arts and Humanities Discovery Theme, Center for Latin American Studies, Department of Spanish and Portuguese, Spanish and Portuguese Colloquium Series, Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design, and Livable Futures Project.
