Frances Negrón-Muntaner’s Art Installation and Alternative Currency Comes to East Harlem

CSSD Executive Committee member, and former Unpayable Debt working group co-director, Frances Negrón-Muntaner brings her interactive art installation to East Harlem for 10 days at the end of this September. Originally launched in Puerto Rico, the project was also shown in the Lower East Side before coming to El Barrio.

Born in response to the Puerto Rican debt crisis, and building on the work of the Unpayable Debt working group, the Valor y Cambio project proposes an alternative currency that, thanks to the participation of local establishments, is usable to buy products from food to museum tickets.
