Puerto Rican Light (Cueva Vientos)
Puerto Rican Light (Cueva Vientos), a new Dia Art Foundation commission by Jennifer Allora & Guillermo Calzadilla, is situated in a natural limestone cave system near the southern coast of Puerto Rico. This long-term site-specific work integrates the journey to the site as part of the viewer’s engagement. The companion publication eschews the traditional catalogue in favor of gathering contemporary scholarship on the issues surrounding the project. It pairs photographs of the journey to and from the site with newly commissioned texts, acting as both artist’s book and scholarly compilation. Political theorist Franco “Bifo” Berardi, novelist Juan López Bauzá, philosopher Timothy Morton, architectural historian Spyros Papapetros and anthropologist Michael Taussig contribute, among others.
