The exhibitions to which Efraín Barradas referred, which were presented in 1987, were: Recent Developments in Latin American Drawings, organized by José Gómez Sicre for the Art Institute of Chicago; Art of the Fantastic: Latin America, 1920–1987, organized by Holliday T. Day and Hollister Sturges at the Indianapolis Museum of Art; and The First America: Selections from the Nancy Sayles Day Collection of Latin American Art, organized by John Stringer at the museum of the Rhode Island School of Design. For a review of the exhibition, Art of the Fantastic, see 1065386. Plástica magazine, where this review was published, was an art publication that appeared fairly regularly in Puerto Rico. It began modestly enough in 1968, as the newsletter of the Liga de arte de San Juan [San Juan Art League], but changed its name in 1978 to Plástica revista de la Liga de estudiantes de San Juan [San Juan Student League Visual Arts Magazine]. Its very specific title notwithstanding, the twenty-one issues of the magazine explored a wide range of subjects within the broad parameters of Puerto Rican and Latin American art, filling its pages with retrospective coverage of subjects, such as the V Bienal de San Juan del grabado latinoamericano y del Caribe [5th San Juan Biennial of Latin American and Caribbean Prints] (1981), Puerto Rican architecture, and Latin American visual arts. The first editorial board of the magazine included Hélène Saldaña, Delta Picó, Cordelia Buitrago, and J.M. García Segovia. In addition to the many essays written by top Puerto Rican thinkers, the magazine published contributions from some of the leading Latin American artists and critics, such as Luis Camnitzer, Damián Bayón, Jacqueline Barnitz, Samuel Cherson, Joseph Alsop, Omar Rayo, and Ricardo Pau Llosa, among many others.
