Carolina Caycedo: Aesthetics of Commodity

The Institute of Contemporary Art, San Diego is pleased to present Aesthetics of Commodity, a solo exhibition, by Los Angeles-based artist Carolina Caycedo at ICA San Diego North.

The exhibition features a unique series of digital collages in which Caycedo overlays 19th and 20th-century stocks and bonds from the commonwealths of Puerto Rico, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.

Governments sell bonds to private parties for public programs like water, energy, housing, health, and education.

Caycedo calls attention to how the lavish decoration on the bonds, such as detailed borders, insignias, and pastoral and picturesque landscapes are indicators of a colonial history.

Showing that our current economic foundation was built on this legacy and that these bonds utilize art and beauty to hide ugly truths and encourage commodification of basic human rights.

Aesthetics of Commodity kicks off the new exhibition season, Limitless Growth, Limited World, in which 11 local and international artists use contemporary art to portray possibilities and conversations about what we value and consume.
