About this product
- DescriptionContemporary Puerto Rican art presents itself as an art of resistance. Visual and theatre artists attempt to define and defend a Puerto Rican political, social, and cultural discourse disallowed in their colonial context. Visual Artists and the Puerto Rican Performing Arts provides primary documentation for the study of visual artists steadily working in the Puerto Rican performing arts from 1950 to 1990. The artists are Jack and Irene Dela, Antonio Martorell, Jaime Suarez, and Oscar Mestey-Villamil. They have produced theatre works doubling in them as actors, dancers, playwrights, designers, choreographers, and directors.
