Orlando Caraballo’s “Capicú” featured in CapSoul
Visual artist Orlando Caraballo’s exhibition “Capicú” presents a story about how personal, familial, and cultural systems create complex histories and futures, and how one inherits the choices of those that went before. Through drawing, printmaking, installation, and photography, Caraballo creates portals that peer into his life and the life of his ancestors. Layered in love, death, grief, time, and acceptance, “Capicú” contains generations of struggle, progress, and legacy.
Caraballo’s “Capicú” will show from January 25 - March 4 in the CapSoul gallery at Akron Soul Train.
