Hey all! Pedro LopezDeVictoria here, program coordinator and educator with Indie Grits Labs. For the months of June and July of this year, I was a resident artist at Diagonal, an art gallery in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Post-Visiones, I experienced a feeling of sehnsuct — the pull of the motherland — that led me to this opportunity thanks to AS220 Artistic Director Shey Rivera, whom I met at Indie Grits this year as her part of the Weekly Revue. Culminating in a performance and short film screening at the gallery, the residency was an incredible opportunity to witness the work of other arts organizations across cultures. I wrote a post for the AS220 blog, which you can check out here.
Soon enough, I’ll be coming out with some work from the residency. Stay tuned!
