Ernesto Pujol in group show “Figure and Form: Recent Acquisitions to the Permanent Collection”, at El Museo del Barrio, New York…This exhibition features a selection of recent acquisitions to El Museo’s permanent collection. It includes our most recent purchase, David Antonio Cruz’s Puerto Rican Pieta, a portrait of the artist and his mother, acquired thanks to a generous gift from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Foundation. It is accompanied by another large-scale self-portrait by Alessandra Exposito, a gift of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, New York, and a set of body cast sculptures by artist Rigoberto Torres (Puerto Rico), generously donated by artist and East Harlem resident John Ahearn. […] The artist is often present, as in a series of photographs by Ernesto Pujol. […] The exhibition highlights the importance and generosity of collectors, artists, foundations and other institutions in the growth and development of El Museo’s collection.
