Through a series of videos, installations, documents, and sculptures, Afro-Cuban artist Javier Castro’s solo exhibition Open Wounds questions the broken promises of a postcolonial world. While many of the practices at the center of the work on view draw directly from the artist’s experiences with the island, the larger exhibition interrogates methods of manipulation embedded within prevalent social structures, including language, economic power, and religion. The show is the artist’s most personal contemplation of the social foundations that underlie our intimate and communal relationships, and the oppression, grief, and injustice that they represent within Black communities.
