Event Description:
The Global Student Certificate Program at the Weissman Center for International Business presents a new series of masterclasses in the arts, A Tour of the World in Six Artworks.

This series of 6 masterclasses by art historians will connect world cultures with the fine arts, to see if we can find an alternate way to become globally-accomplished students. For Baruch students who wish to in order to operate at the highest echelons of business and industry, a working knowledge of art history and culture will be indispensable.

The third event in the series is given by Melanie Mariño, art history professor at the Cooper Union. 

“Weaving Time: Cecelia Vicuña's Disappearing Quipu”
Art Historian and Cooper Union faculty Melanie Mariño will introduce us to the work of contemporary Chilean artist Cecelia Vicuña. Vicuña’s 2018 exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum explored the quipu, an Incan instrument of recordkeeping composed of knots in wool cords that was banned during the Spanish conquest of the Americas in the sixteenth-century. What can her reinterpretation of this ancient communication device tell us about the nature of language, memory, and history?
