On Thursday, February 15th, in the spirit of resistance and resilience, you're invited to the opening of Defend PR, CCCADI's first art exhibit of 2018 at our new, historic Landmark location.

Curated by Mikey Cordero of the Defend PR project, the Defend Puerto Rico Exhibit explores the creative documentation and stories told through the Defend Puerto Rico Transmedia project with a compilation of photography, video, design, and immersive media. An exhibit experience that guides the audience through the past, current, and future dialogue of Puerto Rican identity, culture, and diaspora relationships.

The Defend PR Exhibit is a 6-part exhibit consisting of a compilation of photography, video, design and immersive 360º media that provides the public with access to the current resistance movements and the artists who are documenting their voice and identity in the shadows of U.S. colonization and the current economic crisis.

The opening reception will debut the exhibition and will feature remarks by the project founders Mikey Cordero, Eli Jacobs-Fantauzzi and Adrian «Viajero» Roman.

Founded in 2016, the Defend Puerto Rico (Defend PR) project is designed to document and celebrate Puerto Rican creativity, resilience, and resistance. Recognizing the complex and dynamic landscapes that comprise Puerto Rican daily life and struggle, Defend PR seeks to deepen connections between Puerto Ricans on the island and throughout the diaspora, in the hopes of nurturing greater solidarity, collaboration, and kinship.

The Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) preserves and presents African Diaspora cultures; trains the next generation of cultural leaders; and unites Diaspora communities. We leverage arts and culture as tools for personal transformation, community-building, and social justice.

This exhibition is made possible with the generous support of New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, NYC Councilmember Melissa-Mark Viverto, the New York State Council of the Arts, Taino Towers-El Barrio Fuerte, Postive Work Force, and Bronx Lebanon Hospital.
