At a time when institutions have absorbed the alternative, the art world has expanded exponentially, and we are faced with the catastrophic eradication of the natural world, Pangea has claimed its autonomy and is engaged in the pursuit of the new alternative. The focus of Pangea is a sensual immersion in nature as a way of confronting the most pressing issues of our time.

Pangea Art Republic is founded up on the vanguard history of Exit Art and is headed by Papo Colo.  Colo's work includes performance, painting, poetry, theater, installation and graphic design. In 1982 he co-founded Exit Art. As curator and artistic director of Exit Art and has organized over 100 exhibitions. In 1992 he founded the Trickster Theater to expand his experiments as an inter-disciplinary artist. 

Magic is a mythology. There are different kinds of magic. Myths multiply. Sociopolitical art is everything that we do … For me, myths are the reality of cultures. As a Mystifarian, it is a mission to create new myths and update others. The only object to make is an independent country. 

This country is the Pangea Art Republic, Rio Espiritu Santo, c186 k22 e2, El Yunque Rainforest, Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. It’s my performative space in a rain forest... Is it the result of a whole life of performing, a culmination of all the failures, my teacher? The rainforest is a great cartel for now.
