Sebastián Calfuqueo Aliste, 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 spent a week of workshops, performances, reflections, project support and exploration with us! Thank you, Sebastián!
Sebastián Calfuqueo Aliste’s residency was hosted by the K’acha Willaykuna Andean and Amazonian
Indigenous Arts and Humanities Collaboration, 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). For more information about the K’acha
