Thesis: Beyond the Caribbean: Tracing Puerto Rican Graphic Arts, 1950s-1970s

My thesis focuses on the graphics arts in Puerto Rico during the 1950s to 1970s. This period was not only marked by political transitions but also, by the return of young artists who having studied abroad would closely work together to form the ‘Generación del 50.’ The research will consider how their varying cross-cultural experiences, particularly in the United States and Mexico during and after the Great Depression, contributed to their work and commitment to social issues.

Supervised by Dr. Klara Kemp-Welch
