Working with Puerto Rican artist and photographer Cristóbal Guerra, Condé Nast Traveller proudly presented a snapshot of contemporary Boricuan queer culture as a traveling exhibition at Space Toronto.

We were invited to a special private opening night party that celebrated Puerto Rican culture, including gastronomy, music curated by DJ Lil C, and cocktails provided by BACARDÍ.

The show features a selection of newly commissioned photographs captured by Guerra around the Boricuan island.

Featuring artists, fashion designers, athletes and more, Guerra’s series brings together a group of LGBTQIA+ people that each bring a unique perspective to the evolving nature of what it means to be Puerto Rican. Shot in their personal spaces and communities, these individuals are part of a rich tapestry of queer stories from the Island’s past, present and future.

In addition to the images on display, a video projection captured by Guerra illuminated the show space with the vivid shades of a Puerto Rican sunset. The exhibition debuts to the public on Friday, June 23 in Toronto, before heading to London on Friday, June 30 at The Stables, Covent Garden.

Special thanks to Reach Global Marketing for the invite.
