Laureana Toledo’s film installation Order and Progress (2013-18) will be presented at CAST, with live performances by cellist Natalia Pérez Turner.

Order and Progress addresses the exploitation of the natural resources of the Mexican isthmus, where the artist spent her early childhood. Drawing on Toledo’s research into the connections between Mexico and Great Britain, the project questions the idea of progress through development, confronting the environmental devastation of the area and its human consequences

Laureana Toledo will be joined by Natalia Pérez Turner to play free live performances of the film score:

Saturday 14 July: 7pm, 7.30pm
Sunday 15 July: 12 noon, 12.30pm

Saturday 21 July: 6pm, 6.30pm

The exhibition launch will be held at CAST on the evening of Saturday 14 July from 6pm and Laureana Toledo will be present to talk about her work after the live performances at 7pm and 7.30pm.

CAST Café will offer something hot and something sweet from £7 from 8pm onwards. Café reservations are not required.

The presentation of Order and Progress for Groundwork is supported by AMEXID, the Mexican Agency for International Development Cooperation.
