Carlos Garaicoa: solo show

13 April 2018 - 20 July 2018


Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art will present a solo exhibition devoted to the work of Cuban artist Carlos Garaicoa (b. 1967). Exploring a diverse body of work, the exhibition will reflect upon the city - its limitations as well as its potentials and possibilities - as a physical infrastructure, social network and political space. Garaicoa teases at the dialectical relationship between macro-economic architectures and micro-realities by juxtaposing the city at street level and the city from above. Pitting utopian ideologies against dystopian ruins, repression against expression, the local against the global, Garaicoa's investigation of the urban environment is built on dualities.

Working across a wide range of mediums, Garaicoa adopts a process-oriented, multidisciplinary approach to his art-making, at the core of which stand his consistent use of photography, writing and architecture.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a tailored programme of educational events aimed at engaging the public.
