Cauleen Smith: My Caldera

Cauleen Smith’s 2021 solo show at LACMA, Give it or Leave it, brought together film, installation, colored lights, and archival materials to construct a phantasmagoric exploration of Afro-futurist liberation. Her upcoming solo show My Caldera, takes a similarly expansive approach, looking at volcanoes as a metaphor for overthrowing the status quo, from the ecological and geological, to the social and political. Incorporating hand-sewn banners, topographical candles, film, disco, and heavy metal, the show is akin to an immersive, theatrical protest manifesto.
