Karlos Carcamo packed his bags and headed down to his homeland, sunny El Salvador three days ago. He's participating in an exhibit at the Marte Museo Arte De El Salvador in San Salvador. The exhibit Zonas de Trueque, curated by Jose Ruiz of the Bronx River Arts Center and which also features the work of Experanza Mayobre, Diego Medina and Irvin Morazan, is part of a series of interventions in specific locations throughout the museum by invited artists. This PDF chronicles some past interventions in the series.
Karlos is also currently in the midst of a residency at the Lower East Side Print Studio shop. One of the projects he's working on during the residency is a series of postcards featuring many of the fine correctional facilities here in our area.
