PUERTO RICAN SUN
by Pedro Vélez
As I passed through the black steel gates in the graffiti-decorated pink façade of La Respuesta Club
at 1600 Fernández Juncos Avenue in San Juan, the venue for FAS 08 Sound Art Fair
, Aug. 15-17, 2008, the video artist and television producer Ozzie Forbes
greeted me effusively with a phrase worthy of a bumper sticker: "In the worst of times, Puerto Rican artists produce the best of shows."
