Event Description: “Lyle O. Reitzel Contemporary Art Gallery, founded in 1995 and with a new branch in New York, presents -- for the first time in Santo Domingo -- the renowned Uruguayan artist Ignacio Iturria, featuring his most recent individual exposition 'Interformas' or 'Intershapes.' The opening, which will be attended by the artist, will take place on Thursday, October 6th, since 7:00 p.m. in the first floor of Torre Piantini. The 'forge' of this exhibition project named 'Intershapes' is the result of more than a year of collaboration between the artist, the Iturria Foundation and Lyle O. Reitzel, the gallery owner, its curator, who selected a series of artworks, mostly unpublished, including drawings, paintings and art objets. Iturria is already in the country and has expressed his fascination with its people and the Caribbean idiosyncrasy, working in an idyllic place while producing new pieces to enrich this collection ... ”Read more: Artnet-Ignacio Iturria's Interformas and Lyle O.

About the Artist: “Ignacio Iturria (Montevideo, 1949) is known for his expressive paintings full of cryptic and poetic allegories, whose frequent scenario is a private domestic space with deliberate disproportions. His work explores how the inner life of the individual can be expanded and fill the world around him. As Hucho Achugar says, Iturria is an artist who continues reinventing himself, an artist whose work is both mature and extremely fresh. With a career of more than 40 years, Iturria is considered one of the most important artists of Uruguay. He represented his country at the LVI Venice Biennale in 1995 receiving special award 'Casa di Risparmio,' and has also achieved a relevant number of other international awards. His work is part of important private and institutional collections around the world: Museums Jose Luis Cuevas and Rufino Tamayo, in Mexico; Fine Arts Museum and Sofia Imber Museum of Contemporary Art (both in Caracas, Venezuela); OEA National Museum of Visual Arts, Uruguay and Youngeun Museum, Korea, among others ... ”Read more: Artnet-Ignacio Iturria's Interformas and Lyle O.
