    Tony Capellán Special Guest at the 28th National Biennial of Visual Arts
    Santo Domingo, October 7 2015

    Adiscerning selection of the works of artist Tony Capellán is on exhibit at the Special Guest Hall of the 28th National Biennial of Visual Arts 2015, which the Ministry of Culture has organized at the Museum of Modern Art (MAM).

    The works of Tony Capellán are being displayed in the Special Guest Hall, located on the first floor of the Museum of Modern Art, a space that it shares with the works of Maestro Fernando Peña Defilló, the artist that is being honored in the framework of the 28th National Biennial of Visual Arts 2015.

    The Minister of Culture, José Antonio Rodríguez, referring to the participation of Tony Capellán, as an invited guest of this 28th National Biennial of Visual Arts, explains that "justice is being done, not only to his work and career within the Dominican arts, but also to the true talent that he embodies of a generation that has known how to seize the contemporary Dominican art, thus becoming an example among many of his contemporaries."

    He argues that today these facilities are examples of a vision of the art and the national reality that are unmistakable and necessary.

    Tony Capellán was born in Tamboril, in 1955. He is a multidimensional artist, a poet, scholar, adventurer and exporter of the imagination. He studied art at the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo and at the Art Students League of New York.

    During the last three decades, he has undertaken an intense and fruitful creative work that has allowed him to develop one of the most progressive, vital and representative artistic proposals of the contemporary Latin American art. His installations have been welcomed at important museums and art spaces of countries such as Brazil, the United States, Puerto Rico, Peru, Nicaragua, Spain, France, Mexico, Cuba, the Netherlands, Norway and Martinique, among others.

    Amable López Meléndez, chief curator of the Museum of Modern Art and art critic, believes that, in his creative process, "Capellán recycles the spoils of industrial post capitalism and the remnants of the Caribbean Sea, assigning to found objects an entirely different meaning as multipurpose devices and the sparks of a series of installations that have been orchestrated and which result from an eminently playful and reflective artistic practice, marked by poetry, creative freedom, ethics and the provocation of the viewer's consciousness."

    The 28th Biennial of Visual Arts will be open to the public every day with extended hours from 9:00 am to 10:00 pm, at the Museum of Modern Art, located in Av. Pedro Henríquez Ureña, Plaza de la Cultura Juan Pablo Duarte, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
