Jesús ‘Bubu’ Negrón

  • Jesús Cruz Negrón, also known as 'Bubu', is an artist whose work is characterized by site-specific gestures and interventions that make no separation between art and life. His work consists of photography, sculpture, drawing, writing, performance, video and is often characterized by minimal interventions, the re-contextualization of everyday objects, and a relational approximation to artistic production as a revealing act of historical, social, and economic proportions. His works commonly act as tributes to daily survival in Latin America, revealing the experiences of ordinary people and the world of injustice that surrounds them by presenting it in elite spaces such as art fairs and biennials. His practice is a relational approximation to artistic production, a revealing act of historical, social and economic critique. Negrón lives in the neighborhood of Puerta de Tierra in San Juan, where he is part of grassroots community organizations for the preservation and well-being of the neighborhood, its history, and its people.
