Description

El Museo del Barrio is delighted to present “Taller Boricua: A Political Printshop in New York“, an exhibition that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the founding of Taller Boricua/The Puerto Rican Workshop, a collective studio and alternative space that was established in East Harlem, one year after the opening of El Museo del Barrio in 1969. Bringing together works by artists who actively participated in the first 12 years of its existence, between 1970 and 1982, the exhibition is comprised of more than 200 works and ephemera by founding and early members, including Marcos Dimas, Carlos Osorio (1927 – 1984), Jorge Soto Sánchez (1947 – 1987), Fernando Salicrup (1946 – 2015), Nitza Tufiño, and Rafael Tufiño (1922 – 2008), among several others.
