Daniel Lind-Ramos

MoMA PS1 presents the largest museum exhibition to date of the work of Daniel Lind-Ramos (b. 1953, Loíza, Puerto Rico). The presentation showcases more than 10 large-scale works that weave together the artist’s multi-layered practice, including many new or never previously seen works. Lind-Ramos uses found and gifted objects of personal, communal, and regional significance—such as debris, decorative objects, and everyday tools—to produce meticulously detailed assemblages that explore the traditions and histories of Afro-descendant communities in Puerto Rico, the Caribbean, and around the world. Featuring works that reveal the fast-disappearing local traditions of agriculture, fishing, cooking, and carnival alongside the landmark sculptures that examine the repercussions of Hurricane Maria in 2017, the exhibition will culminate with several large-scale works made within the last year that address the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on local communities.

The exhibition is co-organized by Ruba Katrib, Curator and Director of Curatorial Affairs, MoMA PS1 and Kate Fowle, guest curator and former director of MoMA PS1 with Elena Ketelsen González, Assistant Curator, MoMA PS1.

The exhibition is made possible with major support from the Henry Luce Foundation.
