Williams D. Adams Gallery


Join us as for lunch in the Art Museum lobby as London-born Colombian artist from Los Angeles talks about her work with meshing art and advocacy.  Caycedo participates in movements of territorial resistance, solidarity economies, and housing as a human right. Her work contributes to the construction of environmental historical memory as a fundamental element for non-repetition of violence against human and non-human entities and generates a debate about the future in relation to common goods, environmental justice, just energy transition, and cultural biodiversity.
Caycedo’s ongoing project, Be Dammed, uses Indigenous cosmogonies of the Americas, conceptualizing all bodies of waters as connected. Be Dammed investigates the effects that large dams have on natural and social landscapes in several American bio-regions. Carolina uses aerial and satellite imagery, geo-choreographies, and audio-visual essays to intersect social bodies with bodies of water, exploring public space in rural contexts, and conjuring water as a common good.
Caycedo formal talk will be in Ostrove Auditorium at 7:00 pm later the same day, Wednesday, March 4th.
Oak is also organizing a day trip to the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston on Saturday, March 7th, where Caycedo’s exhibit is on display as of January 20th. Please email abhalla@colby.edu if you would like to attend.
