“Que Bonita Bandera” was an installation featured in the three-person exhibition New Earth: Caribbean Mythmaking at ACRE Projects from July 7-July 31 st , 2017. Artist Jacquelyn Carmen Guerrero reimagined a Puerto Rican flag that incorporated a hand-stitched evil eye made of sequins as well as leather, bells, and satin. This flag, hung over an installation of sand, glitter, shells, and clay, was meant to operate as an emblem of healing against oppressive forces of colonialism and natural disaster in the Caribbean.
