The San Juan Poly/Graphic Triennial is a new iteration of the former San Juan Biennial of Latin American Prints (1970-2001.) Five international curators were invited to answer the question: What role do graphics play in contemporary art?

The curatorial team formed by Mari Carmen Ramirez (Puerto Rico), Justo Pastor Mellado (Chile), Harper Montgomery (USA), Jose Ignacio Roca (Colombia) and Margarita Fernandez Zavala (Puerto Rico) answers this question with Trans/Migration, a metaphor for technical and conceptual displacements in printmaking, as well as the movement across and between the Americas.
