Conociendote: Por las Nubes/ In the Clouds

Media Title

Philadelphia-based artist José A. Ortiz Pagán transforms Taller’s garden into a sanctuary with this sculptural installation allowing viewers to contemplate time. It echoes the migratory dreams and reconsideration of travel and departure of the people in the area. “Por las nubes” is a popular Caribbean expression that describes how far and out of reach something could be. Concert at 8:30 pm. at the Taller Puertorriqueño’s Roberto Hernandez Theater. Education Building 2557 N. 5th St. Las Gallas- Julia López, Magda Martinez, and Michelle Angela Ortiz- are a Philadelphia-based multidisciplinary artists’ collective whose work combines theatre, visual arts, film, poetry, spoken word, and literature. Las Gallas will perform Ghetto Bolero, a funny mixture of music, theater and satire that re-imagines the traditional Latin American boleros from a woman’s point of view. Conociéndote (Getting to Know You): Bridging the Audience Divide is Taller’s 2013 Knights Art Challenge award-winning proposal to bridge Philadelphia’s audience divide with events and exhibitions in May, July, and September. The events connect the work of five organizations in North Philadelphia around three commissioned, month-long, socially conscious, outdoor art installations by artists Nancy Saleme & Patricia Cazorla, José Ortiz Pagan, and Andrea Morales & Maya Escobar. The commissioned work address the history of women in the textile industry of the area, the hope and dreams of the migrant Latino community, and the images being created as they look towards the future. The partner organizations are Congreso de Latinos Unidos, HACE, Raíces Culturales Latinoamericanas, and a Seed on Diamond Gallery. For the May and July receptions a trolley will transport the public between sites during the opening reception. A performance will close the event at 8:30 p.m.
