The past year is going to be remembered as one of the loudest art seasons on the island, beginning last October with British artist Martin Creed’s almost unnoticeable bell-ringing piece, Todas las campanas [see Artnet News, Oct. 19, 2006], which left local art-and-music junkies more than a little aggravated. Keep in mind that down here in Puerto Rico, with the hot rums and the sun, pretentiously arty rock music has little durability.
