Exhibition
Carlos Garaicoa. Unfinished Order
Madrid, 22.11.2014 - 08.03.2015

Carlos Garaicoa (La Habana, 1967) is a key figure among Latin-American artists from the 90’s. He is also a reference both inside and outside of Cuba when it comes to understanding artistic discourses through the globalization of Cuban art that started that same decade. Since then, his work has continued to revolve around social, economic and political change resulting from the history of the 20th century. This change is codified in an urban territory that becomes a field of study: architecture and urbanism are the two main focus of attention.
