Abecedario afectivo: José Morales-Instalaciones

Puerto Rico is filled with larger than life art, which is one of the reasons I decided to move here for awhile. Thankfully, I’ve made a few artsy hip friends who brought me along to the Museo de Arte de Puero Rico for a tour of their most recent exhibition titled “Abecedario afectivo: José Morales-Instalaciones.”

The exhibition as a whole is divided into three installations. Content of these shows explore the juxtaposition between the high society art/advertising world and what what we see daily throughout Puerto Rican streets, war, childhood struggles, parental affection, and the minute instances in between these topics. The execution and exhibition design is thought provoking. Did I mention there are interactive surprises within it all?

Curator Juan Carlos López Quintero lead us through the shows, articulately speaking about  New york based artist José Morales and his process. The lecture was of course in Spanish, so I didn’t understand it all. However, I did understand more than I would have 7 weeks ago, so feel great about that.

Visit the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico  (http://mapr.org/es) now until December 28th to see this work. Friends in the states, it’s worth the trip.
