Sebastián Calfuqueo Aliste is a contemporary Chilean artist of Mapuche origin who creates 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 Aliste’s residency is hosted by the K’acha Willaykuna Andean and Amazonian Indigenous Arts and Humanities Collaboration, an interdisciplinary Global Arts + Humanities Discovery Theme initiative committed to critical engagement with Indigenous cultures of Abya Yala (the Guna denominator for the American continent in its entirety).

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