El Museo de las Américas (Cuartel de Ballaja, Viejo San Juan) presenta la exposición Pies secos pies mojados, del artista plástico Humberto Castro, desde el 3 de marzo al 7 de mayo.
La primera retrospectiva de Castro en Puerto Rico "reúne importantes obras realizadas entre los años 1995 y 2009, cuyo discurso común es el éxodo. Si bien temas como la violencia, la mitología, el hábitat, y la cotidianidad han sido constantes en sus lienzos; es sin duda la migración uno de los más recurridos por el artista. Humberto Castro, testigo él mismo de la separación familiar y el desarraigo causados por el exilio, nos deleita con la intensidad y colorido de su obra. Esta exposición propone nuevas reflexiones sobre las diversas causas que motivan el desplazamiento del Hombre por el mundo. Fuga, travesía, deseo… reafirmando su capacidad infinita de sacrificio en busca de sus sueños". (María A. López-Vilella)

Humberto Castro was born in Havana, Cuba, on July 9, 1957. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts San Alejandro and Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA) in Havana, Cuba. He works in painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics and installations. He is one of the most active members of the group widely recognized as the “Generation of the 80s” in Cuba, which generated changes in the aesthetic and conceptual art scene of the island. In 1983 he founded the team Hexagon in which, alongside other artists, he mounted installations aimed at provoking public participation in the work. Between 1980 and 1984 he produces an extensive body of graphics, particularly innovating in the intaglio technique. He has designed sets for theater and film in Cuba. In 1989 he emigrated to Paris, France, where he lived for ten years and became active in the Parisian intellectual scene, holding exhibitions and giving conferences across Europe. In 1999 he moved to the United States, where he lives and works.
