Building Annex of the Museo de Arte de Ponce

For about two months, the artist carries out countless experiments in situ on different supports using the frottage technique. The sixteen sketches presented in this exhibition document the artist's creative process and passionate search for the perfect formula to "preserve a genuine memory of its bark" in what will eventually become The Shroud of the Ceiba, a canvas of monumental dimensions, which will be presented in the Jardín Puerto Rico of the Museo de Arte de Ponce in August 2024. Both exhibitions comprise Requiem to the “Ceiba de Ponce”: Tato González, our satellite project for the Poli/Gráfica de Puerto Rico: América Latina y el Caribe, 2024.

Centenaries

July 13, 2023 – April 13, 2025
Building Annex of the Museo de Arte de Ponce

The decade of the 1950s witnessed one of the most prolific periods in the history of Puerto Rican art. The confluence of catalytic events such as government support for the arts, the convergence of a group of like-minded artists, some educated abroad and exposed to the international avant-garde, and the presence of exiled Spanish artists on the island, promoted the production of the so-called Generación del 50. Connected by an established artistic tradition and a unity of purpose that did not prescribe the development of their interests, these artists introduced new themes and styles to Puerto Rican painting that are demonstrated in this selection of works created between 1953 and 1964 that are part of the collection of the Museo de Arte de Ponce.
