Lares Feliciano - "Pa'lante"

Hi, my name is Lares Feliciano and I am an interdisciplinary artist and cultural worker.

A contraction of "para adelante", Pa'lante is Puerto Rican slang for "forward". Throughout Puerto Rican history Pa'lante has come to be a rally cry for resistance and resilience. In the summer of 2019 Puerto Ricans demonstrated the deep and powerful message of Pa'lante as protestors of all ages marched in the streets demanding the resignation of corrupt Governor Roselló. This piece celebrates the success of those protests and the power and perseverance of the Puerto Rican people.
