PRESS RELEASE: Inty and Yauri Muenala at Flynndog in Burlington

Contemporary paintings by brothers Inty and Yauri Muenala reflecting the traditional culture of the Kichwa of the Ecuadorian Andes.

November 5, 2010 - February, 2011

Two brothers, Inty Muenala and Yauri Muenala, are contemporary indigenous artists devoted to preserving and sharing the cosmology of the Andean Kichwa culture – a culture filled with life and millenarian tradition – through art and its different manifestations.

The earthy textures, Andean symbols, millenarian (hi)stories and the experience of a globalized world combine in a single proposal where identity matters most: the identity of that which is different; the identity of that which is natural; the identity of a nation; the Kichwa nation; the identity of a symbol; self-identity; how to be human, with a present history and a transgressive future.

A closing reception with dance performance by Lisbet Conejo of Ecuador will be scheduled.
