This presentation will trace the development and growth of, The Museum of the Old Colony, a work of conceptual installation art that derives its name from a U.S. brand of soft drink named Old Colony, popular in Puerto Rico since the 1950s. Through the use of appropriated imagery, the installation ironically bears witness to the colonial oppression imposed by the U.S. institutional and cultural fabric on virtually all aspects of Puerto Rican life since the 1898 occupation. With sardonic humor, The Museum of the Old Colony references traditional anthropological museums and their use of ethnographic imagery and didactic texts.
