Los Carpinteros (Marco Castillo and Dagoberto Rodríguez) is an internationally acclaimed Cuban artist collective best known for merging architecture, sculpture, design, and drawing. Los Carpinteros’s work has reflected on social transformations in post-revolutionary Cuba, offering critical commentary of dominant ideologies and power structures with humor and artistry.
Cuba Va! by Los Carpinteros will feature two videos from 2018—Comodato and Retráctil—and a group of LED sculptural portraits rendered as heroic revolutionaries. The exhibition will be Los Carpinteros’s first museum project as a collective since their separation in summer 2018.
On October 10 at 6:30 PM, Los Carpinteros will be at The Phillips Collection to discuss Cuba Va! with Senior Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art Vesela Sretenović.
Cuba Va! is part of Intersections, a series of contemporary art projects that explores—as the title suggests—the intriguing intersections between old and new traditions, modern and contemporary art practices, and museum spaces and artistic interventions. Whether engaging with the permanent collection or diverse spaces in the museum, the projects suggest new relationships with their own surprises.
