    Museum of Modern Art Holds Colloquium on HRSuriel’s “La Estancia de Lata”
    Santo Domingo, September 4th, 2017

    For the closing ceremony of the exhibition “La Estancia de Lata,” by visual artist HRSuriel, the Ministry of Culture held a colloquium titled “Senderos y geografías poético-visuales” (Visual-Poetic Trails and Terrain) in the Museum of Modern Art (MAM).

    The discussion convened as panelists noted art critics Danilo De los Santos, visual artist, curator, historian, cultural entertainer, and teacher; Odalís G. Pérez, holder of a doctorate in literature and semiotics, Director of the Postgraduate Division of the Art Department and Professor at the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo (UASD); and Amable López Meléndez, Head Curator of the MAM, poet, and columnist in art-focused newspapers and magazines.

    For Odalís G. Pérez, educator, writer, and curator of the exhibit, “The aesthetic of HRSuriel is an enigma that carries along its own biography, where we find symbols, stories, and footprints of a person that we can detect in its spaces and aspects of meaning.”

    Meanwhile, Danilo De los Santos explained that “It isn’t a discourse of denouncement, it doesn’t offer a broken language, it is neither postmodern nor radically contemporary (Art Now), it isn’t gaseous or liquid because it isn’t fleeting or momentary like the performance or installation of so-called decay art.”

    De los Santos added “His works aren’t per se linear drawings and graphic engravings, nor are they by themselves comprehensive sculpture-paintings though they are involved in an overwhelming polysemic, imaginary, lyrical, non-Cubist abstract, non-constructivist, non-expressionist, non-Dadaist, non-surreal writing in a pure and traditional style… An observer of the discourse would not even be able to perceive its kinetic nature, its magical realism, its new way of speaking, its explicit or implicit revival.”

    Meanwhile, López Meléndez, Head Curator of the Museum of Modern Art, assured that the motivational drivers of HRSuriel have been brought together in an unadulterated state, without falsehood, deformation, or deliberate informality. For the Head Curator, the artist’s works are the type that have burst onto the scene as proof of the unexpected and brilliant creative presence in contemporary Dominican art.

    “La Estancia de Lata” opened on May 11th in the Museum of Modern Art and since then has been the basis of a broad educational program, based on visits and participation from students, visual artists, and distinguished members of society in the arts and culture.

    The Dominican Museum of Modern Art is open to the public from Tuesday through Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. It is located at: Avenida Pedro Henríquez Ureña, Plaza de la Cultura Juan Pablo Duarte, Santo Domingo.
