We Place Life at the Center
Featuring Los Angeles-based Colombian artist Carolina Caycedo, We Place Life at the Center is an exhibition, publication, and pedagogical platform that directs dialogue and points of exchange among art, science, and environmental justice in the Americas. Caycedo’s multi-disciplinary practice engages with water and land stewardship, food sovereignty, and fair energy transition using Indigenous and eco-feminist frameworks. The exhibition assembles artworks by Caycedo and collaborators from across the Western Hemisphere, encompassing drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, video, performance, and socially engaged and community artworks, while also highlighting the ecological movements and processes that have informed them. Complementing the exhibition are extensive educational programs and partnerships, including an international convening of community scientists and grassroots environmental leaders, and a research practicum for Art and STEM students at East Los Angeles College.
