On View now through September 13, 2014
El Museo del Barrio, now celebrating its 45th anniversary, re-imagines its beginnings with MUSEUM STARTER KIT: Open With Care, an exhibition that explores the unusual founding of El Museo and solicits community participation to invent new museums—creating unorthodox museums of the moment.
BACK IN FIVE MINUTES allows for any performative elements informing the artistic process and practice to surface, as well as for the on-going presence of the resident artist in the gallery to become an artwork in and of itself. Visit the artist Mauricio Arango on-site Live in Las Galerías from September 3 to October 11, 2014.Find out more »
