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

Order and Progress explores Britain’s colonial exploitation of the natural resources on the Mexican isthmus, where the artist spent her early childhood. Drawing from Toledo’s research into the connections between Mexico and Great Britain, the project examines historical events to question the idea of progress through development, and to investigate the political, social, and cultural contexts shared by these countries.
