Cuban art collective Los Carpinteros has been featured in ‘The Ghost of Architecture: Recent and Promised Gifts’, an exhibition that celebrates the addition of important works of art to the Henry’s permanent collection in the last five years.
Curated from recent gifts and promised gifts to the collection, the exhibition focuses on contemporary works that invoke architecture without citing it directly. Architecture or the architectural dimension is referenced by the artists in the show, either as a displaced or isolated fragment, as fantasy or folly, as the site of ordinary or extraordinary events, or as memory or the missing context in larger narratives.
