Be Dammed: Art as Resistance to Environmental Destruction

March 4, 7:00 PM

Free

Carolina Caycedo is a London-born Colombian artist living in Los Angeles. She 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.

Join the Oak Institute as Caycedo shares her ongoing project, Be Dammed, which 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. Caycedo 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.

There will also be a casual lunchtime conversation with Caycedo in the Museum of Art lobby at noon the same day, Wednesday, March 4.
