El Puerto Rican Embassy represents a new generation of experimental Puerto Rican artists working at the margin of established art movements – who take risks which illuminate contemporary issues, question established cultural aesthetics and challenge dominant political issues.

Adál Maldonado, Artistic Director – El Puerto Rican Embassy


Welcome to El Puerto Rican Embassy where sovereignty is a state of mind
and everyone is welcome to party regardless of their party.
