About this event

AFRORRIQUEÑES: Affirmation, Solidarity and Healing

May 25-27 2022 at Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center

A multi-day series committed to the continuous dialogue on Afrodescendencia.

The history of the arts in Puerto Rico has traditionally repeated, observed, and framed the achievements of artists based on their adherence to movements outside the islands, primarily in Europe and the U.S. historical and cultural responsibility to their own contexts of origin. This workshop we will incorporate and explore works of art, scholarship, and artists who contributed to the body and meaning of the continuous rebirth of Puerto Rico’s visual culture.
