Sol Calero: El Autobus

Add to itinerary
Admission Free
Start Time 10:00
End Time 17:00

Sol Calero’s new commission, El Autobús 2019, is inspired by travelling in Latin America, where richly decorated buses are popular means of transport.

For locals, the bus is a necessary part of the daily commute, while tourists use them in pursuit of exotic adventure. Calero explores this tension in an audio-visual installation featuring a guided tour that takes visitors on a journey through an imagined land.

Highlighting the clash between expectations and reality, Calero exposes the privileged position of those who can benefit from the global tourism industry. As she questions cultural misconceptions, she offers an alternative to the western perspective on the world.
