FRESCOS presents the work of 50 Puerto Rican artists under 35 years of age, selected by 10 internationally-recognized curators. These artists are members of a cosmopolitan generation who studied or work all around the world-in Europe and Asia as well as the Americas. Eight essays provide a context for their production. FRESCOS is a provocative book, the first to document the work of this generation as a whole, aiming to spark the curiosity of anyone, whether specialist or not, interested in Puerto Rican art and contemporary art in general.
