Jan 29th through Feb 2nd, 2010.
Circa Puerto Rico returns with its fifth edition to the Puerto Rico Convention Center in the heart of San Juan with nearly 30 international galleries. Having achieved worldwide visibility, the fair has earned a reputation for its intimate atmosphere and selection of carefully curated local and international emergent art. Circa Puerto Rico has cultivated and fostered an important group of local collectors with exceptional programming both in and beyond the fair’s walls. This year, Circa Puerto Rico celebrates with a new challenging curatorial component, Circa Labs under the direction of Pablo León de la Barra.
Circa Labs will provide a more experimental aspect to the fair, curated by renowned artist-curator Pablo León de la Barra. Conceived to promote interdisciplinary and alternative artistic proposals, the project aims to enable younger audiences by offering a more democratic and less intimidating approach to contemporary culture. Circa Labs offers a cross-cultural experience in which urban art, live music, performance, styling, skating, tattooing, and product customization mix- challenging traditional approaches with contemporary culture.
Pablo del Barra will utilize large containers to display his curated series of young cutting-edge galleries with non-traditional proposals, often at a price range more accessible for emerging collectors.
