Art Exhibition: Víctor Vázquez’s “Pulguero”


We are excited to announce the forthcoming exhibition “Pulguero” [Flea Market]. “Pulguero” is a retrospective that presents 30 years of Víctor Vázquez’s artistic production. Including 109 works, the exhibition opens on Thursday, April 27, at 6:30pm at the Puerto Rico Museum of Art [Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico (MAPR)]. It will be on view until the end of October 2017. The museum is located at 299 De Diego Avenue in Santurce, Puerto Rico.

Description (source: MAPR; my translation): Using a conceptual framework, artist Víctor Vázquez presents an archeological landscape in which themes related to memory, history, migration, the body-as-semantic-structure, and the relation between word and image, are used to reflect on established discursive constructions and narratives.

Víctor Vázquez is one of the most well-known contemporary artists from the Caribbean. He has held individual exhibitions in Europe, Latin America, and the United States, in addition to participating in numerous collective shows. His works appear in prestigious collections around the world. This exhibition represents a unique opportunity to get to know and/or rethink the symbolic imagery of our time from the privileged view of one of our artists with the most international prestige.
