Interconnections: Curatorial Readings of the MAPR Collection
Interconnections: Curatorial Readings of the MAPR Collection is the result of an interpretation of the intrinsic potentialities of the collection in search of new perspectives for the study of Puerto Rican art. Its plural and open character responds to a contemporary curatorial approximation, one that favors the particular over dogmatic totalizations. The constellations of meaning suggested can be expanded upon and even substituted with others without losing validity.
Interconnections is a thematic exhibition, or better stated, an exhibition with many themes, since the display in each of the halls could stand independently. In each gallery the exhibited works set out formal and conceptual confrontations and analogies without losing sight of aspects related with the socio-political and cultural contexts in which they were created.
