Description: Please be part of us for the closing weekend of the exhibition Raphael Montañez Ortiz – A Contextual Retrospective at El Museo del Barrio! The day-long celebration will embrace a panel dialogue honoring the impression of artist, educator and founding father of El Museo, Raphael Montañez Ortiz, adopted by a question-and-answer session. This system will culminate with a particular efficiency, the place Ortiz will revisit his legendary Explode this Bag motion, first staged in London in 1966. Conceived as a brand new Paper Bag Destruction Live performance, this participatory piece will invite the viewers to explode and burst air-filled paper baggage in a cathartic, collective expertise.

Las Galerías will stay open till 6pm to discover El Museo’s on view exhibition Raphael Montañez Ortiz: A Contextual Retrospective.
