The Braid

la trenza – the braid is a project with a feminist perspective, which aims to show that curatorship is a process in which the relationship between artists and curators develops in a personal and political sphere. That is, curatorship as a practice that involves the body and a series of negotiations that constitute a layout or a network that articulates the artists’ production in a discourse that goes beyond the individual and thus allows the articulation of the different devices that are activated during an exhibition: Work, museography, curatorship, space, and socio-historical context.

Taller Boricua – From Art Workers coalition to the Present

Taller Boricua emerged in East Harlem within the cultural landscape of New York City in 1969, alongside the artistic effervescence that took place Downtown, particularly in SoHo, Tribeca, and the Lower East Side. Their objective was to activate, through art, processes of social resistance in frequently neglected, underserved communities. From the beginning, they have been part of the Nuyorican movement that originated in the late 1960s in neighborhoods like Loisaida, Williamsburg, and East Harlem aka El Barrio; visual artists, writers, especially poets, and musicians, converged in El Taller (The Workshop), where prints, Spoken Word and Salsa developed within the environment of Latin American culture, today deeply rooted in New York.

Off The Cloth, Part II

This second part of Off the Cloth, like its predecessor that inaugurated WhiteBox’s new space in March 2022, presents an intergenerational dialogue between women artists whose work refers to their transcultural influences through the use of textiles as material and metaphor. It further develops some of the topics that emerged from the first show, among them: textiles as a performative medium; textile works as a vehicle for social memory; textiles and ecofeminism; and textiles and intermediality.
