Showing in London for the first time in a public institution, Cuban artist Carlos Garaicoa reflects on 'the city' as a physical infrastructure, social network and political space. This exhibition at Parasol unit comprises large-scale installations, sculptures, video and photography, all essential components of his work examining the urban environment. Garaicoa documents city landscapes, particularly his hometown of Havana, creating works steeped in provocative commentary which reflect a frustration with social, economic and political issues. Raised in a Communist regime and culture infused with ideologies, including the role of artist in society, Garaicoa's first reaction was to use a camera to capture, re-imagine and to symbolically rebuild the crumbling modernist utopias. Curated by Dr Ziba Ardalan, Founder/Director of Parasol unit, the exhibition is accompanied by a tailored programme of educational events aimed at engaging the public.
