Ask a Curator: no existe un mundo poshuracán 

Tues, Nov 29, 2022
7 pm

Online, via Zoom

Explore no existe un mundo poshuracán: Puerto Rican Art in the Wake of Hurricane Maria with two of the exhibition’s organizers, Marcela Guerrero, Jennifer Rubio Associate Curator, and Angelica Arbelaez, Rubio Butterfield Family Fellow. 

Organized to coincide with the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Maria, a high-end Category 4 storm that hit Puerto Rico on September 20, 2017, the exhibition explores how artists have responded to the transformative years since that storm. The exhibition brings together more than fifty artworks made over the last five years by an intergenerational group of artists from Puerto Rico and the diaspora. no existe un mundo poshuracán—a verse borrowed from Puerto Rican poet Raquel Salas Rivera—is the first scholarly exhibition focused on Puerto Rican art to be organized by a large U.S. museum in nearly half a century.

For this program, Guerrero and Arbelaez will provide an overview of the exhibition and then take questions from the audience.
