Join artist Carolina Caycedo for a participatory book launch of the Serpent River Book. The event begins in the exhibition «A Universal History of Infamy,» will move through the LACMA campus, and conclude in LACMA's Research Library to view and discuss a selection of artist books from the collections of LACMA and UCLA.

Guest speakers: Alexis Curry/LACMA and Robert Gore/UCLA. Guest performers: Marina Magalhães, Isis Avalos, and Samad Raheem Guerra.

Serpent River Book is a 72-page accordion fold artist-book that combines archival images, maps, poems, lyrics, and satellite photos with the artist's own images and texts on river bio-cultural diversity, in a long and meandering collage. The publication gathers visual and written materials compiled by Caycedo while working in Colombian, Brazilian, and Mexican communities affected by the industrialization and privatization of river systems. Serpent River Book is part of the ongoing body of work 'Be Dammed' that investigates the effects of extractivism on natural and social landscapes, exploring the power dynamics associated with the corporatization and decimation of water resources.
