Desde 2016, trabajamos juntos con artistas locales para pensar y producir una exposición de arte contemporáneo Rapanui; KA U'I.     

Con la curaduría de la artista Macarena Oñate, la exposición se ha presentado en cuatro espacios. En cada ocasión, se han agregado artistas y obras de arte, convirtiendo el proyecto en un proceso que todavía está en curso como una instancia de experimentación e investigación.

Excerpt from de curatorial text;

“Tourism on its part has strongly influenced the development of craftwork, music and folkloric dance.

This is how the emphasis on the protection and transmission of traditional knowledge impose a conservation-oriented outlook, taking away attention from contemporary artistic and cultural expressions.

This need for reclaiming a cultural identity that was negated and lost in time has led to a production that permanently remits to and seeks a resonance in the past, consolidating the pride of an “ancestral” cultural identity.

This group exhibition explores the contemporary production of artists from other fields; craftwork, souvenirs, folklore, documentary work. In some cases they are mere nods, unnoticed; the transition toward an art space could even be conceived here as a transmutation of what is handcraft or folkloric towards a contemporary reading.”
