ARTitude Galería - Reyes Ocre
Occupying their new front in Dempsey Hill is ARTitude Galería, a Colombia-centric gallery that prides its vernacular on repositioning Latin-American visuals within Asian contexts. Kept as a monthly initiative, the gallery opens its doors to the public for a weekend of prelude into the careers of the represented artists. Reyes Ocre fills the roster for this year's Gallery Weekend with his symbolic and cryptic reflections of daily lives led by Latinos in the neighbourhood of Villa Juana, Santo Domingo. Chaotic or serene, the realities of Dominican life can only be liberated from preconceived prejudice or intolerance through Ocre's renderings in his expressionism style.
