13 April 2018 – 20 July 2018 | Visit website

Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art, is pleased to present a solo exhibition of works by Cuban artist Carlos Garaicoa, showing here in London for the first time in a public institution. 

In this exhibition, Carlos Garaicoa reflects upon ‘the city’ – its limitations, potential and possibilities – as a physical infrastructure, social network and political space in this exhibition comprised of large-scale installations, sculptures, video and photography.

Often taking as his starting point the urban environment and therefore architecture – particularly those of Havana and Madrid, the two cities where the artist both lives and works – Garaicoa documents city landscapes, creating works steeped in provocative commentary which reflect a frustration with social, economic and political issues. 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.

The Carlos Garaicoa exhibition runs from 13 April - 20 July 2018 at Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art, 14 Wharf Road, N1 7RW. Admission is free.
