Join us at Taller Puertorriqueño from August 11 to October 21, 2023 as we welcome Patrick McGrath Muñiz's latest exhibition, Arcanas: Neocolonial Retablos Inspired by Tarot. Curated by Daniel de Jesús, this show features 30 new artworks that explore the intersection of tradition and innovation.

Be part of the Opening Reception on Friday, September 15, 2023, from 6:00pm - 9:00pm and let his artwork inspire your imagination! By appropriating figures and icons from tarot, Spanish colonial iconography, and pop culture, the artist recreates scenes that mirror his experience living in a world impacted by the onslaught of digital communication and information, climate change, social inequality, and the global pandemic.

McGrath Muñiz’s distinctive style seamlessly blends his bicultural upbringing with his signature Baroque-inspired painting technique visualizing our world in the Digital Age. He encourages viewers to explore the roots of our colonial past and gain a deeper understanding of how it shapes our present and future.
