This event has ended.

Elia Alba, Firelei Báez, Melissa Calderón, Lizania Cruz, Megan Curet, Camilo Godoy, Jorge González and Chemi Rosado-Seijo, Alicia Grullon, Adal Maldonado, Steve Maldonado Silvestrini, Carlos Martiel, Proyectos Sabrosos, Heryk Tomassini, and Lulu (María Luisa) Verona

The exhibition Self-Organize / Auto-Organizar looks at work that challenges and reimagines the physical, emotional, and geographical boundaries of identity; and asks us to reflect on how, what, and why we are taking matters into our own hands through the works of artists who mobilize, respond, expose, heal, and rebuild together. Often, it is artists that lead efforts to address the needs of their community when the system, the government, and aid fall short. These artists investigate the construction and destruction of identity, of what constitutes being through the use of their body, installations, books, interviews, videos, and paintings.

At the opening reception on November 15 Proyectos Sabrosos/ Sabroso Projects invite visitors to join the Decolonized Republic by registering and receiving a passport with a new visual identity for post-resistance Puerto Rico. Posters will also be sold with all proceeds going towards relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

Through Afro Latin rhythms and contemporary form, Megan Curet explores how bodies move within systems and how systems affect the moving body. Join us for a special dance workshop led by Megan Curet on November 29.

For Lizania Cruz, learning, honoring and sharing immigrant’s stories is central to her work. As an extension of her project We the News, a platform that amplifies immigrants’ unique stories, Cruz installs an interactive map where people can trace their immigrant route—inviting you to share your stories about being an immigrant or a first generation American. Join us December 1 to be a part of Cruz’s sanctuary space led by the act of storytelling in efforts to empower and build community.
