From the museum:
The Institute of Contemporary Art, San Diego is pleased to present Aesthetics of Commodity, a solo exhibition, by Los Angeles-based artist Carolina Caycedo at ICA San Diego North.

The exhibition features a unique series of digital collages in which Caycedo overlays 19th and 20th-century stocks and bonds from the commonwealths of Puerto Rico, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.

Carolina Caycedo deconstructs the visual language of financial bonds and their implication of a colonial legacy in her show Aesthetics of Commodity.

In a series of digital collages, Caycedo overlays 19th and 20th century stocks and bonds from the commonwealths of Puerto Rico, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, calling attention to the symbolic text and imagery emblematic of the consumption of land and the economic and social systems formed through the sale of those bonds. Elaborate tableaus, vignettes, and borders extracted from historical documents highlight themes parallel to Manifest Destiny, slavery, and modern day capitalization of public infrastructure.
