Ernesto Neto and the Huni Kuin
Aru Kuxipa | Sacred Secret
in collaboration with Kunsthalle Krems

Aru Kuxipa is TBA21’s latest artist-centered initiative involving Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto’s collaboration with the Amerindian artists and pajés (spiritual healers) of the Huni Kuin people. The exhibition unfolds as an experiment, establishing a zone of encounter with our “ancestral futures” and an investigation of the teachings of plants and the spiritual nature of objects. As part of their residency, the Huni Kuin will be present in the exhibition until July 5 between 2:00 and 7:00 p.m.> >

Olafur Eliasson and David Adjaye
Your black horizon Art Pavilion
Lopud Island, Croatia

Your black horizon Art Pavilion is an interdisciplinary project by artist Olafur Eliasson and architect David Adjaye, commissioned by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary, in which the fields of art and architecture are merged into an “interlocking equation”, wherein ephemeral visual appearance and architectural formulations exist simultaneously. Inaugurated in June 2005 as an official project at the 51st Bienniale di Venezia, the pavilion has found an (im)permanent home on the island of Lopud in Croatia.> >

Ernesto Neto and the Huni Kuin ~ Aru Kuxipa | Sacred Secret
Inauguration and Assembleia

On March 6-9, an assembly of 34 pajés, 20 professors, and 15 artisans took place in the village of Novo Natal located on the Jordão river in the Brazilian State of Acre. The representatives of all the 37 Huni Kuin villages accepted Ernesto Neto’s invitation to participate collaboratively in a joint exhibition project at TBA21 in Vienna. The exhibition Aru Kuxipa, which opened on June 25 in Vienna brings to life age-old and venerated shamanic spiritual knowledge and healing rituals of the indigenous peoples of the Amazon and weave together anthropology, ecology, education, and contemporary forms of expression to create distinctive experiences and interrogate our present moment. > >

Treasure of Lima: A Buried Exhibition

A major new site-specific exhibition on Isla del Coco, 550 kilometres off the coast of Costa Rica. Treasure of Lima: A Buried Exhibition engages the narrative and legal identity of the island, contrasting historical legends of buried treasure with the island’s real status a natural treasure worthy of protection. In so doing the project embellishes the ‘treasure island’ imaginary by interrogating models of spectatorship and property rights, while venturing the question ‘How can an exhibition create its own legend?’> >
