Ida y Vuelta: Art Culture and the Diasporican Experience
Join CENTRO for the opening night of Ida y Vuelta: Art Culture and the Diasporican Experience at the Hunter College East Harlem Gallery on March 30th. The exhibit, whose name translates to Round Trip, Migration Experiences in Contemporary Puerto Rican Art, is curated by Laura Bravo and features 19 Puerto Rican artists whose works respond to the experience of many Puerto Ricans living abroad. Migration has been a determining issue in Puerto Rico´s recent history, especially since 2012, due to significant crises and natural disasters. The exhibit first opened in February 2017 at the History, Anthropology and Art Museum, University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus nad has since traveled across the country before landing in Harlem. The evening will feature a first look at the art and a live musical performance.
Opening Reception: March 30, 6-8pm
Ida y Vuelta: Migration Experiences in Contemporary Puerto Rican Art will be on view at the East Harlem Gallery from March 30th, 2023 through September 30, 2023.
