    Museum of Modern Art Inaugurates the Exhibition "Inés Tolentino 10 years"
    Santo Domingo, March 2, 2017

    The Ministry of Culture, through the Museum of Modern Art (MAM, for its acronym in Spanish), inaugurated the exhibition: "Inés Tolentino 10 years", a retrospective of the artist, composed of more than 80 works, including paintings and drawings, covering the last decade (2007-2017).

    María Elena Ditrén, Director of the MAM, during her inaugural speech highlighted that Inés Tolentino is shows herself from the force, the expressiveness and intimate freshness of her themes. Among the topics that roughly define Tolentino´s decade of artistic production are: femininity and the environment, gender-based violence, clothes as second skin, urban violence and the visual chaos, among other autobiographical topics.

    Amable López Meléndez, curator, art critic and head of the Museum of Modern Art (MAM), said that "the criss-cross of fabrics and paper, with auspicious figurations as a unifying language and stylistic key, favors a wide and deeply thoughtful exploration of two-dimensional production materialized by Inés Tolentino during the last decade, both in the formal and the conceptual aspects.”

    He added that "in these objects of dream, memory and reflection, pictures, inscriptions and allusions as emotional, existential and cognitive links intertwine, with both worlds parallel and simultaneous (Paris and Santo Domingo) in which she has been formed and to those she constantly returns with love, imagination, clarity, passion and fiery persistence".

    While defining herself, the artist revealed: "I am a factory of images. I transform feelings, knowledge, reflection, information and my understanding of the world in pictures. In particular, I use the drawing. Intimate dialogue between the hand and the thought. Sometimes meddles, in this dialogue, tubes of paint and brushes. Today I also transform my mental images in a three-dimensional scene."

    Inés Tolentino was born in Santo Domingo. She studied in the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes and in APEC.  Later in the National School of Fine Arts and at the University of Paris I, Pantheon-Sorbonne, where she acquired a Bachelor's degree and a master's degree in Fine Arts and Art Sciences, where she also obtained a Diploma of specialized studies in ethno-anthropology.

    Her solo exhibitions have been presented in Paris, Cagnes sur Mer, United States, Martinique, Bordeaux, Brussels, Abu Dhabi, San Diego, Tijuana, Panama, Santo Domingo and San Juan, Puerto Rico. Also features a wide trajectory in collective private and public exhibitions in places like London, Berlin, Brussels, Washington, Miami, New York, Madrid, Tokyo and Taiwan. In addition to representing her country in multiple biennials, galleries and international fairs.

    "Inés Tolentino 10 years" will be open until mid-April in the second floor of the Museum of Modern Art in the Dominican Republic, open to the public from Tuesday to Sunday, between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm, located in the Av.
