Curator's Talk on 'POSTERS ON THE WALL' Exhibition Set for First Park, 6/23
Curators Miguel Trelles and Juan Fernando Morales, along with Centro's senior archivist Pedro Juan Hernández, will discuss the aesthetic significance and historical relevance of the posters featured in "Posters on the Wall: Our Nuyorican Story". It all takes place on Monday, June 23, 2014, 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at First Park on the corner of Houston and 2nd Avenue in Manhattan.
Meet the curators of Centro's (Center for Puerto Rican Studies, Hunter College) traveling exhibit Posters on the Wall: Our Nuyorican Story. This exhibit illustrates the rich and diverse work of Puerto Rican artists who are especially distinguished for their contributions to printmaking. The posters, which are from Centro's substantial graphic art collection, represent Puerto Rican social, political and cultural interests from the tumultuous 1960s through the 1990s.
This project is part of FABLES, a series of public works exploring Lower East Side history. Presented by Fourth Arts Block in partnership with First Street Green and NYC Parks.
