Acuarelas Etnográficas (Ethnographic Drawings) 

2013. From the Good Savage to the Conceptual Revolutionary exhibition curated by Pablo León de la Barra at Travesía Cuatro, Madrid, Spain

 

 

These drawings are part of an ethnographic and anthropological research that showcases the different rooms of the Museum of the Americas in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The museum is organized thematically and includes the American Indian, African Heritage, Folklore and Folk Arts and Conquest and Colonization rooms. The drawings question their ideological content and reflect upon a museological practice rooted in positivism and scientific categorization of cultures.
