Shey Rivera Ríos: La isla fantastic or Fantasy Island Church

Shey Rivera Ríos at AS220 Project Space

The AS220 Project Space has been converted into a retro-futuristic real estate office for this month’s Shey Rivera Ríos installation. A timely study of Puerto Rican politics, the installation coincidentally arrives just as islanders voted in favor of statehood, sort of. A sleek but dated glass desk sits in one corner, watched over by a video monitor projecting fluffy clouds in a bright blue sky. Other screens project vaporwave interpretations of capitalism on the island, with flashing images of resort properties, dollar signs, and symbols representing traditional culture. Rivera, a Puerto Rican native and AS220’s Artistic Director, is spending the month stationed at the glass desk, where she explains the territory’s current political situation while presenting as a realtor hocking luxury properties.
