Alum Carolina Caycedo to Participate in 23rd Biennale of Sydney
Organizers of the Biennale of Sydney announced the first 59 participants, including USC Roski alum (MFA '14) Carolina Caycedo, in the 23rd edition of the event. This iteration of the Biennale, titled rīvus, will be open to the public from March 12 to June 13, 2022.
The 2022 Biennale of Sydney will be articulated through a series of conceptual wetlands and imagined ecosystems populated by artworks, public programs, experiments, research and activisms, following the currents of meandering tributaries that expand into a delta of interrelated ideas.
Carolina Caycedo is a London-born Colombian multidisciplinary artist known for her performances, videos, artist’s books, sculptures, and installations that examine environmental and social issues. Caycedo’s artistic practice has a collective dimension to it in which works of art are not just an end result, but rather part of the artist’s process of research and acting. 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. She participates in movements of territorial resistance, solidarity economies, and housing as a human right; and works with groups and communities affected by extractivist projects involving the construction of dams and the privatization of bodies of water to generate debate about environmental justice.
