Open Quipu/Quipu Abierto
The exhibition Unraveling Collective Forms and its programming Open Quipu/Quipu Abierto look to create a space to gather, remember, learn, and connect with the audience in a common thread. It is an invitation to interlace our own narratives in a khipu, to become talking knots. It is a way of both stringing together, and unraveling possibilities to reimagine ourselves.
