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."
