Following the success of Santurce es Ley, an independent union of art galleries that created quite a buzz for the area of Santurce to become (once again) the hub of the contemporary art scene in Puerto Rico, MIA Projects will be taking over an abandoned gas station in Santurce in Total Intervention; a one night only art happening that is meant to revitalize this once sought after art district. According to MIA (Missing in Action) founder and Creative Director, Margarita Alvarez, this will be the first of a series of pop-up galleries created by MIA Projects.
The event boasts a nice line-up of artists that includes Margarita Alvarez, Carolina Caycedo, Radamés ‘Juni’ Figueroa, Kristen Fink, Katalina Iturralde, La Ele, Michael Linares, Jesuís ‘Bubu’ Negrón, Josué Pellot, Chaveli Sifre and Sebastián Vallejo. There will also be live musical performances by Los Niños Estelares, Campo Formio, Polidesto and Naranja. The event starts tonight, August 25th at 8pm.
