Miguel Luciano’s Cemí-Libre

Jun 28, 2022 10 MINUTES

“Where are we represented in the Museum? Where do I see myself, where do I see my history, my own culture? Like, where is Puerto Rico? Where is the Caribbean represented at all?”

Celebrate Taíno culture, the legacy of the Young Lords, and the El Barrio community with Miguel Luciano, Civic Practice Partnership Artist in Residence (2017–2021). The culminating event of his residency, “Cemí-Libre,” showcased his art alongside a replica of a Cemí Cohoba stand at the Galería del Barrio and was followed by a block party celebration featuring performers from the community.
