Pablo Delano’s The Museum of the Old Colony (MotOC) is an ongoing conceptual installation that addresses the complex history of the artist’s native Puerto Rico since the Spanish-American War of 1898. Appropriating archival photographs, film footage and popular artifacts, MotOC provocatively critiques entrenched misperceptions of Puerto Rico disseminated in mainstream media. The work speaks to the relationship between U.S. imperial power and the island nation, and to the devastating legacies of colonial rule. MotOC also illuminates the power of images to inculcate cultural values and the authority of museums to confer meaning on the images it collects and displays.
