This exhibit showcases a limited-edition series of broadsides featuring the work of contemporary Puerto Rican poets, presented in Spanish and English. Edited by Erica Mena and Raquel Salas Rivera, the broadside series, titled Puerto Rico en Mi Corazón, was published by Anomalous Press in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. The collection was created as a project of conversation between Puerto Rican poets on the island and in the diaspora: “speaking to each other,” in Mena’s words, “across languages and oceans, across parties and economies, across all that is set up to divide us.”
