Since 1995, Lyle O. Reitzel Gallery opens its doors in Santo Domingo and focuses its efforts in supporting the new artistic tendencies of the Dominican Republic, Latin America and the Caribbean. For the 2006-2010 period, it establishes itself at Wynwood Art District, Miami. For nearly two decades, being Santo Domingo its main platform, and faithful to its aesthetic proposal supporting the new, strange and extravagant, it has organised a series of exhibitions in galleries and museums in the great capitals of the world, while also taking part in several prestigious international art fairs like, ARCO 1997, Madrid, where the gallery was invited and its participation was curated by Octavio Zayas. It has also been part of ArteBa, Buenos Aires, Zona MACO, Mexico, CONTEXT Art Miami during Art Basel, and has been invited twice to VOLTA NY during the Armory Show, featuring a Solo Show by artist Gerard Ellis, as well as PULSE Miami, SCOPE Miami/New York, MiART, Milan, here the gallery featured two solo shows, by García Cordero and Bedia respectively. Also, KIAF, Korea, where it was invited to the Latin American Pavillion, and PINTA London, exhibiting “Black & White/ Rock n’ Roll”, by García Cordero, among other international participations. In 2002, Lyle O. Reitzel Gallery in conjunction with the MOLAA (Long Beach, CA) organized and curated “Human Conditions” by García Cordero and in 2010, organized and co-curated “Global Caribbean II: Caribbean Trilogy, Focus on the Greater Antilles” featuring works by García Cordero, José Bedia and Edouard Duval-Carrié, which was part of Art Basel’s Public Program Special Event. In 2010, 2011 and 2013, Lyle O. Reitzel Gallery was awarded by the Association of Art Critics in the category “Best Exhibition”.

  • Ignacio Iturria

    Biography : Ignacio Iturria was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, in 1949 and grew along the waterfront of the Plate River. The city’s physical character and cultural spirit lingers in Iturria’s art, notably with the recurrent presence of nautical scenes. The colors most associated with Iturria’s work are the thick, muddy browns and earthy tones that churn through the Plate River and the southern Atlantic Ocean. Iturria returned to Uruguay in 1985 from an extended stay in Cadaqués, Spain, where he was immersed in the expressive pictorial language associated with the vibrant colors and energies of Spanish life. His art became focused more prominently on the themes of childhood memory. Exploring the subjects of everyday life around him, his painting also featured images of children’s toys such as figurine soldiers. Much of Iturria’s recent work reflects an interest in enhanced materiality and sculptural qualities, with large amounts of thick, tube-like portions of paint hovering on top of his canvases. Iturria has been featured in several exhibitions in recent years and represented his country at the LVI Venice Bienale in 1995, winning the special prize “Casa di Rispario.” His work has been recently exhibited at the Art Museum of the Americas in Washington D.C.; the North Dakota Museum of Art in Grand Forks and the Cultural Center of Winnipeg, Canada; the Museo de las Americas in San Juan, Puerto Rico; the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Buenos Aires, Argentine, which later traveled to the Museo Rufino Tamayo in Mexico City and the Museo de Monterrey in Mexico; and the Museo de Bellas Artes in Valencia, Spain.
