“Puerto Rican Art Now” with Antonio Martorell:

7-8:30 p.m.

Tyler School of Art, room B004.

Antonio Martorell, regarded as one of Puerto Rico’s most important cultural figures, will present a travelogue through 20 years of culturally poignant Puerto Rican art.

About the Artist…

Martorell was born in Santurce, Puerto Rico and has been involved in the arts ever since to justify his birth and postpone his death. This urge has taken him to work closely with a number of collaborators including the public in many countries. In a great variety of media, he has communicated in unpredictable but engaging ways, the quest for that something else that becomes a bonding agent which leads to some sort of discovery. Martorell has exhibited and performed, created installations, engaged in workshops, and lectured in Latin America, North America, the Caribbean, and Europe, and participated in international collective exhibitions on all five continents. He has received numerous awards and held many individual exhibitions nationally and internationally.
