Radamés “Juni” Figueroa

at SculptureCenter,
44-19 Purves St., Long Island City, Queens

Puerto Rican artist Radamés "Juni" Figueroa makes his U.S. institutional debut with "NAGUABO RAINBOW DAGUAO ENCHUMBAO FANGO FIREFLIES," a verdantly tropical installation. Ferns, potted in plastic buckets, a neon-green backpack and cut-open basketballs and soccer balls, dominate the space; one can retreat from all the greenery in a treehouse-esque structure, complete with a hammock. All in all, an enjoyable way to skip forward to summer, albeit in SculptureCenter's otherwise rather spartan warehouse.
