We’re very excited for artist Miguel Luciano, who will be leading a kite building workshop to accompany Hunter College’s “Anchor,” an exhibition centered on the photography of Hiram Maristany, curated by Arden Sherman.

In 2006, Juan Sánchez organized a solo exhibition at CUE of Luciano’s work. Sánchez describes Luciano’s practice: “Miguel Luciano is a cognizant and dynamic artist. His paintings, sculpture, videos and combined media installations raise critical questions about globalization and colonial dependency, in particular examining the social and political impact on Puerto Rican and Latino communities.”

Miguel Luciano, Plátano pride, 2006

Pure Plantainum (2006) is a body of work that commemorates the plátano (green plantain), a stereotypical yet iconic symbol of Puerto Rican and Caribbean culture. In the Pure Plantainum series, actual plantains were plated in platinum. The objects boast a pristine, precious exterior, while the actual fruit decomposes within. They are presented like emblematic jewels that transform cultural stigmas into urban expressions of pride.”
