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. Carolina’s artistic practice has a collective dimension to it in which performances, drawings, photographs and videos 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, and generates a debate about the future in relation to common goods, environmental justice, just energy transition and cultural biodiversity.

Upcoming solo museum shows include Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź, Orange County Museum of Art, and ICA Boston. In 2019 she will participate in the 45 Salón Nacional de Artistas Colombia, Chicago Architecture Biennial, Film sector of Art Basel in Basel, and will be a 2020 visiting artist at the NTU-CCA in Singapore. Caycedo is an active member of the Los Angeles Tenants Union and the Rios Vivos Colombia Social Movement.
