Visionary prints and installations at Taller Puertorriqueno

Visiones from Postmodern Aztlán rolls into Taller Puertorriqueno this week with a group of 39 silkscreen prints from sunbelt activist printing studios, Coronado Studio (Austin, TX) and Self-Help Graphics (Los Angeles). (image is Alma Lopez’s “La Llorona Desperately Seeking Coyolxuahqui” which refers to the unsolved murders of 300 Mexican women and girls along the US-Mexico border)

Also in the show are paintings and installations by local Latino artists Marta Sánchez (of Cascarones Por La Vida fame), César Viveros, Brujo de la Mancha and

Rocío Levito.

The exhibit, organized by Taller Gallery Director Anabelle Rodriguez, opens Friday, July 30, with a reception from 5-8 p.m. A panel discussion Saturday July 31 at 3PM will feature local artist Sanchez and representatives of the two print studios.

Taller, in the North Philly bario, is an outpost of juicy art and fresh perspectives. I’ve rarely been disappointed by an art encounter there. I’m going to try to make that panel discussion. See you there.
