TPP will be participating at La Cartelera 2 @ Publica Espacio on December 8-9-10, 2023

As part of our on-going mission to promote prints and keep adding to the rich tradition of poster history in Puerto Rico and Latin America, we produce prints from contemporary artists and sell them at affordable prices. We are committed to producing the print on the Island amid rising costs of production it is imperative we do everything in PuertoRico and have it be a 100% Puerto Rican product. Although prices have almost doubled after hurricane Maria devastating path, we are trying to adjust and keep the project going. 

La Cartelera is a super cool event in a flea market sale vibe that allows all the artist that work prints and on paper can just set a table and put their works to sell. No fancy set up, no costly booths, none of that crap, just a good old table with amazing art with a set up that permits lower prices for everyone. 

This year on Friday December 8, the event will be hosting 3 conferences FREE of charge for everyone. Starting at 4pm Gilberto Arias will be talking about Revolutionary Carteles de Izquierda and their historical context. Following will be a presentation of the new documentary by Amanda Alonso where she interviews print master Luis Alonso to who the event is dedicated (Luis Alonso will be at the event) and to close the conference cycle the headliner Dra. Teresa Tio the author of the book we call the bible of the industry El Cartel will be giving a lecture on the Cartel and the influence and importance of Luis Alonso in the history of the Cartel. This is a must attend event for anyone who likes carteles.

We will have a table selling our TPP Limited Edition Prints and we will be presenting a new release for the event. We will also be selling the La Cartelera 2 and La Cartelera 1 original posters. The event poster was designed by graphic artists Jesus Diaz, he is my favorite graphic artist and is responsible for all my logos including Trailer Park Proyects, Mi Primera Tacita de Cafe, Second Hand Gallery, La Cartelera 1 Poster in collaboration with Garvin Sierra, etc... The posters will be printed in limited quantities and we will have different color variations of the same design. You can also see the poster in the streets as part of the traditional wheat paste on the walls Santurce, San Juan and Rio Piedras.

Make sure to mark the date and come see us and all 40 tables of artists, dealers, galleries and affiliated colleagues from the art scene. 

See you there.
