San Juan, Puerto Rico, Engravers by Engravers

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 25, 2018, 7:01 PM

These pasteups are in old San Juan and are on a wall that frames a piece called "La Puerta" - - a doorway initially painted in full color as the flag of Puerto Rico but then rendered in black and white as a protest of the under-funding provided to the island by the U.S. government. The doorway, but not the door, can be seen in the first photo. The pasteup series is called "Engravers by Engravers, Puertorican Master Printers, 2014."  They are made by a group pf Puertorican artists led by Rosenda Álvarez Faro and including Pamela Osorio, Roberto Tirado, Verónica Rivera, Omar Velázquez, Leyla Mattina, Genaro Ramos and Elizabeth Barreto. The term "engravers" includes printmakers. These photos were made in 2018, and four years of wear and tear is evident.

Villar Rojas - - Theater of Disappearance

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 27, 2017, 9:38 PM

The Geffen MOCA in downtown Los Angeles has turned itself over to Villar Rojas for a site-specific installation of his Theater of Disappearance.  The space is pitch black until your eyes adjust as rocks and what looks like excavation cores are exposed. And then you pick out a number illuminated refrigerators each containing  a still life, as challenging as they are beautiful, simulating what may wash up on the shore of an inaccessible beach. The space is painted a deep blue initially suggesting ocean but ultimately representing emptiness.  These are some photographs made at the exhibition.

"What is doomed to disappearance, what cannot be preserved. Villar Rojas unveils this spatial and material fragility to remind us of the fleeting and minuscule presence of our own existence in the universe."

The EU is the European Union which governs most of Europe (now excluding Britain) on a variety of economic and social issues although the individual countries still have local controls.  It's complicated. The EU, like the United States, is always doing some things some people don't like.
