José Luis Vargas: “Vehículos y puentes”
Visible artist José Luis Vargas leads the collective undertaking “Vehículos y puentes” [Vehicles and Bridges], which might be on view on the MADMi, Museo de Arte y Diseño de Miramar [Miramar Museum of Art and Design] in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The exhibition opens on Saturday, Could 14, 2022, at midday on the the MADMi, in Titín Corridor. The museum describes the exhibition right here:
Since its inception, MADMi has at all times been very conscious of being a part of the neighborhood and has been actively concerned within the social improvement of the Santurce and Miramar space. From that mission got here the help for the “Vehículos y puentes” undertaking by visible artist and educator José Luis Vargas, which we are going to current this Saturday, Could 14.
The undertaking makes use of artwork as a software to realize introspection, dialogues, and transformations. The members are primarily made up of people that had been as soon as homeless and now function counselors for others by way of the Fairness and Social Justice Program of the La Fondita de Jesús Company.
A number of communities within the space, corresponding to Shanghai, Villa Clemente, La Perla, and Colective El Hangar, may also take part, in solidarity with the hassle to attenuate the stigma and misinformation that usually surrounds homeless individuals.
By drawing and portray workshops, dialogue classes based mostly on the e book The 4 Agreements by Miguel Ruíz, and an assemblage of buying carts changed into cellular sculptures, the members had been immersed for a number of months in processes of self-reflection that might be displayed within the last works to be exhibited on the museum in the course of the month of Could.
