Edited with text by Carla Acevedo-Yates. Text by David Hernández-Palmar, Pilar Tompkins Rivas.

Themes of social and environmental justice in the multimedia artworks of renowned Colombian artist Carolina Caycedo

Carolina Caycedo’s (born 1978) immense geographic photographs, lively artist’s books, colorful hanging sculptures and other works are not merely art objects, but gateways into larger discussions about how we treat each other and the world around us. She confronts topics such as the privatization of rivers and other bodies of water, territorial rights of Indigenous groups, the use of violence by police and the environmental, economic and social impacts of dams on local communities.

This book showcases Caycedo’s process with lavish illustrations of her work, including stills from her video Apariciones / Apparitions (2018), selections from her book Serpent River Book (2017) and images of her celebrated Cosmotarrayas series.

Printed Matter presents Carolina Caycedo, Carla Acevedo Yates, Lorena Mostajo and gloria galvez in conversation

Friday, January 15 at 8PM EST, Printed Matter presents the second in a series of programs produced in advance of Printed Matter’s Virtual Art Book Fair (PMVABF), February 24–28, 2021. The Los Angeles-based, multidisciplinary Colombian artist Carolina Caycedo was originally invited to create a mural for the cancelled 2020 LA Art Book Fair. In the unrealized mural, like in much of her work, Caycedo illustrates a system of equity for workers and the environment, inviting us to examine our accountability in the world around us. On January 15, she will be joined by curator Carla Acevedo Yates and artists gloria galvez and Lorena Mostajo to address their respective strategies toward social and environmental justice.

We're loving the first major monograph on Carolina Caycedo

We're loving the first major monograph on Carolina Caycedo

Featured images—stills from renowned Colombian artist Carolina Caycedo's 2018 single-channel HD video installation "Apariciones / Apparitions" (2018)—are reproduced from the new monograph/exhibition catalog from DelMonico Books and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, launching tonight at Printed Matter. "Like other works in Caycedo’s oeuvre, her Geochoreographies can also take on the valence of recuperation," Pilar Tompkins Rivas writes, "particularly in the way of lost, overlooked, or damaged histories. In addition to advocacy for the present and future, these works create spaces, movements and objects wherein the memories of lives and movements lost can be recovered and preserved. Nowhere is this more evident than in the video work "Apariciones / Apparitions," in which Caycedo contends with the erasures that have resulted through the processes and legacies of colonialism. Structured around a geochoreography that moves throughout the Huntington in San Marino, California, the piece reconceptualizes spaces within the institution’s gardens, library and museum by performing African and Indigenous spiritual and dance practices. Commissioned as part of a collaboration between the Huntington and the Vincent Price Art Museum at East Los Angeles College, Caycedo’s geochoreography functions to brown and queer the historically white spaces of the Huntington and implements decolonizing strategies to make bodies of color and non-binary bodies visible."

ABOVE: Stills from "Apariciones / Apparitions," 2018. With: Marina Magalhaes (Choreography), Isis Avalos, Samad Guerra, Celeste Tavares, Bianca Medina, Jose Aviles, and Natali Miciche. Cinematography: David de Rozas. Sound Mix: Simon Guzmán.
