“Art is determined not just by what we see, but also by what we learn. What is politically in place for us to identify with. What is and what is not.”

Artist Lionel Cruet from Puerto Rico works with multimedia materials to recreate spaces, scenarios, memories, and experiences. He uses imagery and sites of the natural world to understand the complex and interconnected realities in which we all live.

Tune into this conversation with Lionel at his South Bronx studio to hear him talk about his work, conceptual framework, and creative process. We hope you enjoy!
