About the speakers

Kukuli Velarde

Peruvian-born, Philadelphia-based artist Kukuli Velarde draws deeply on her cultural heritage in a practice that spans ceramic sculpture and painting. She blends indigenous Peruvian culture, philosophy, and belief systems with European Catholic iconography to confront the enduring cultural legacies of colonization.
