Los Carpinteros Creates Thought-Provoking Installations

Cuban art collective Los Carpinteros specializes in some pretty funny art installations. The artwork includes everything from roller coaster couches to a filing cabinet with a far-reaching expandable drawer.

Los Carpinteros is a pretty talented collection of artists, coming up with these wacky yet thought-provoking installations. The simplistic nature of the pieces makes them more interesting, in my opinion.

Implications - Exhibits held by a collective of artists allows each creative mind to showcase their best pieces. Collective events such as Los Carpinteros can utilize more well-known artists names to help draw in a crowd while also giving exposure to unknown or lesser-known artists. Collectives also allow people to draw inspiration from the viewing and possibly make connections to an overall theme of the show.
