press release

Los Carpinteros: Inventing the World is the first major museum exhibition to survey the work of the Cuban collective Los Carpinteros (The Carpenters). Alexandre Arrechea, Marco Castillo and Dagoberto Rodrguez have been working together since 1991 when they were students at Havana's Instituto Superior de Arte. The group's name, which dates to 1994, arose from early works that were reminiscent of furniture or work done by a carpenter. This mid-career retrospective will include a selection of drawings, paintings, prints, installations and sculptures. Transportable City, a group of tents resembling famous buildings in Havana, and Watchtowers, are two examples of work possibly coming to the CAC.

This exhibition is organized and traveled by the University of South Florida, Institute for Research in Art, Contemporary Art Museum, Graphic Studio.
