Join curator, Carla Acevedo Yates, and CENTRO Directora, Dr. Yomaira Figueroa-Vásquez, for a cafecito as they journey through entre horizontes: Art and Activism Between Chicago and Puerto Rico. Together, they’ll explore the intersection of art and activism, and unpack the myriad ways in which creative expression can shape narratives, challenge norms, and build bridges between communities.

entre horizontes: Art and Activism Between Chicago and Puerto Rico examines the artistic genealogies and social justice movements that connect Puerto Rico with Chicago. Featuring works by an intergenerational group of artists with ties to Chicago, the exhibition presents Puerto Rican painters who use printmaking techniques and approaches alongside artists who address social and political issues through their work.

entre horizontes: Art and Activism Between Chicago and Puerto Rico is curated by Carla Acevedo-Yates, Marilyn and Larry Fields Curator, with Iris Colburn, Curatorial Associate. It is on view at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago through May 5th, 2024.
