Taller Boricua Archives
Taller Boricua Archives are currently undergoing a complete reorganizing effort. Because of its 44 year history of exhibiting and promoting artist in El Barrio of East Harlem NY, the time has arrived for a renewed effort to bring together the massive libraries of printed media, photographs, videos, historic artifacts and digital content that are currently scattered through out the digitized memes. The Taller would like to thank all those who were in one way or another involved in past efforts to keep such an important cultural venture continually functioning. Whether it was the web designers, the email campaigners, office staffers or interns, we thank you all and its is in your name that we continue to improve our efforts to finally make available a culturally rich database that will not just benefit the Taller, but also benefit the hundred’s of artist who have honored the Taller Boricua with their creative and inspiring work.
Following the mission of El Taller Boricua, the artist files focus on contemporary art by artists of all ethnicities. El Taller Boricua accepts all unsolicited artist file materials. The majority of its archives and research materials document the history of El Taller Boricua and the Nuyorican artistic community.

Taller Boricua YouTube
The Taller Boricua YouTube channel will be activated in November 2014. It’s key feature will be a dedicated playlist that will simplify the Taller’s content searching capabilities by categorizing the current massive YouTube library posted through out the years by so many of Taller Boricua’s friends and collaborators. By categorizing areas of specific interest and prioritizing its importance, the channel will serve as a research adjunct to Taller Boricus’s reset archival project . Please feel free to notify us if you so happen to find an old posted Taller related video lost deep inside the YouTube cloud servers.
A video like the one below will be categorized under the playlist titled “SALSA WEDNESDAYS“
