Carolina Caycedo


Solo Under (2007)

Juke Box, music selection 100 cds, 84” x 60” x 34”


Carolina Caycedo’s work often consists of a series of actions intended to extend art beyond the confines of the gallery or museum. Seeking to engage the public in social interactions and political gestures, her work bridges art and activism. 

In this context, Solo Under, a juke box normally situated in a bar or restaurant, immediately attracts with the greatest hits of Raggaeton from the 1990’s. 

The selection of music within the juke box is a genre of popular music that is “authentically” Puerto Rican and is a hybrid of Latin and African-American musical influences.
