Vague Ideas of an Established World

“Being Puerto Rican is not only a state of reality,“ says Irizarry. “We were fed through our veins since childhood all the costumes of our rich culture and the pride that carry us away. But now our eyes are looking through other glasses. Different cultures and different ways of thinking came into our brain–what has being established and demolished by the overground and the underground societies, and what we want to stand for or just let go. We all have a vague idea of who we are, of what we want, a hybrid feeling of images, scenes and ideas. We all see the world through different eyes. We are still here, showing you the fruition of different branches with one same root.“

Avant Guide to NYC: Discovering Absence

This exhibition is a viewfinder trained onto the specific sites of the cultural fabric of New York City. The past, represented by the memory imprint of an artistic activity that occurred at a certain site, is “covered” by a current artwork focused on the same site. Through this double take, the past and the present collapse onto each other on a city map. Our intention is to draw precise and living connections between artists, their work, and environments across times — the strands of such connections weave the fabric of the exhibition
