Caleb Duarte

2020 YBCA 100 Honoree

Caleb Duarte is best known for creating temporary installations that suggest basic shelter using construction type frameworks such as beds of dirt, cement, and objects. His installations within institutional settings become sights for performance as interpretations of his community collaborations. Duarte has created public works and community performances at the World Social Forum in Mumbai India, Santiago de Cuba, Cuba, El Pital, Honduras, and throughout Mexico and the United States. He has collaborated with autonomous indigenous Zapatista collectives, communities in movement, and working children and refugees.
