The 3rd Trienal Poli/Gráfica de San Juan explores the notion of collaborative art practices, emphasizing the social networks, real or virtual, in which key artists and practices converge. This edition focus included works from international print shops along with close to 150 international and local artists such as Wifredo Lam, Roberto Matta, Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol, Öyvind Fahlström, Lygia Pape, Hélio Oiticica, Liliana Porter, Lygia Clark, Cildo Meireles and Luis Camnitzer amongst others. The project highlighted those key circuits created by fax, mail, and Xerox art proponents such as Edgardo Antonio Vigo (Argentina); Clemente Padin (Uruguay); Felipe Ehrenberg (Mexico) or Paulo Bruscky (Brazil). Contemporary projects included experimental Caribbean and Latin America pioneers who utilize new and interactive media, artist's groups, and current collaborative sites and non-sites that may broadly be considered the legacy of workshop environment. El Panal/The Hive commissioned select artists or groups to create new projects, often by creating exchanges with workshops. Deborah Cullen, from New York, was the chief curator of the event, with a curatorial team composed of Antonio Sergio Bessa, from Brazil, Ursula Dávila-Villa, from Mexico, and Rebeca Noriega, from Puerto Rico. The artworks were exhibited at the three main venues in the city of San Juan: Galería Nacional, Casa Blanca and Arsenal de la Marina. At the Casa de los Contrafuertes, a group of local artists showed works in homage to the Triennia.
