Please join us for this visiting artist talk featuring Carolina Caycedo. Born in London to Colombian parents, Caycedo transcends institutional spaces to work in the social realm where she participates in movements of territorial resistance, solidarity economies, and housing as a human right. Her artistic practice has a collective dimension to it, in which performances, drawings, photographs and videos are not just an end result but part of the artist’s process of research and acting. Through work that investigates relationships of movement, assimilation and resistance, representation and control, she addresses contexts, groups, and communities that are affected by developmental projects, like the constructions of dams or the privatization of water and its consequences on riverside communities.
