19 photographers come to Puerto Rico in an exhibition that will travel the Ibero-American cultural space
Norma Vila Rivero.

PONCE, PR.- After traveling through Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, and the Dominican Republic, the Latin American emerging photography project “Saltando Muros” (Jumping Walls) has arrived in Puerto Rico and is being exhibited in the Museo de Arte de Ponce from November 23, 2014 until January 12, 2015.

The exhibition, organized by the FIArt Foundation and the Ibero-American General Secretariat (SEGIB for its Spanish acronym) collects the photographs of 19 artists under 35 years old, among them Puerto Ricans Julio Lugo Rivas and Norma Vila Rivero, whose works have been selected from 700 projects submitted through different national calls.

The project seeks to apply the art of photography as a tool for changing social reality and to establish an effective relationship between a museum project and the community to which it is addressed. Through an open and inclusive approach, the audience is conceived as a fundamental part of the exhibit. An interesting feature of this project is that its initiative is based on the work done on social media and the efficiency in the use and optimization of the resources to promote cultural exchange among different countries. "We urge the public to leave their comments on social media outlets using the hashtag #SaltandoMuros. Those comments will be projected on a digital screen around the exhibition" said Julio Amil, teaching artist from the Museo de Arte de Ponce.

"Saltando Muros", which documents the artist’s reality and includes an element of criticism and condemnation, will continue its Latin America tour throughout 2015. After passing through Puerto Rico, it will be exhibited in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, and Spain. The official website is

The participating artists are: Evelyn Merino Reyna (Peru), Miguel Francisco Rueda (Peru), Julio Lugo Rivas (Puerto Rico), Norma Vila Rivero (Puerto Rico), Francisco “Pancho” Rodríguez (Dominican Republic), Yael Duval Liriano (Dominican Republic), Chi-Hua Salinas (Chile), Víctor Anacona Ortiz (Chile), Gabriela Portaluppi (Ecuador), César Morejón Castillo (Ecuador), Sebastián Arce Manrique (Mexico), Fernando Manuel Escarcega Pérez (Mexico), Paula Jiménez (Argentina), Lola García Garrido (Argentina), Santiago Sebastián Salles (Uruguay), Vitor Pontes de Souza (Brazil), Raphael Alves (Brazil), Nicolás Combarro García (Spain), and Alberto Herrero Barceló (Spain).
