The 2da Trienal Poli/Gráfica de San Juan: América Latina y el Caribe has reinterpreted the notion of the poly/graphic proposed by its first edition, in 2004. For this Trienal the poly/graphic unfolds into multiple experimental and marginal, printed and graphic practices, encompassing a diverse range of poly/graphic platforms such as artists’ books, posters, magazines, wallpapers as well as a large-scale multipart exhibition. A special focus is given to publications, which lie at the very center of this Trienal and are displayed in the reading room at the exhibitions spaces at the old Arsenal de la Marina, located in old San Juan.

Complementing the publications, the 2da Trienal expands to offer a constellation of solo exhibitions of artists whose work examines graphic design, printed matter and typography alongside a number of group exhibitions that revolve around the poly/graphic: money bills (Marginal Money), newspapers (Journals), the archive (Personal Records, Public Histories), flags (Vexillology), as well as books as objects (Literary Forms).

A larger and comprehensive catalogue, published in Spanish and in English, will follow, documenting the entire exhibition and its publications, including images of the works on view as well as texts by the curators and interviews with participating artists and desginers.
