tropical papers is pleased to share this conversation with Laura Castro @_.laura_.castro._ about Sindicato, a space dedicated to contemporary art in Santo Domingo.
Based in the Dominican Republic, Sindicato was founded in October 2015 by a group of artists and is currently run by Laura Castro and Quisqueya Henríquez @quisqueyahenriquez.
Sindicato has a dual function as an independent art space and commercial gallery, which proposes different exhibition formats and at the same time activates networks inside and outside the Dominican Republic.
In September 2020, Sindicato invited a group of artists, architects, writers and lay-people to show tools built by themselves and that allow them to build possibilities to solve specific problems. “We are looking to bring together a set of sculptural tools that are proposed as solutions for work of many different kinds: technical, political, sensitive, intellectual, educational, critical…. and whose development constitutes a space for experimentation and reflection around various themes relevant to the current reality”.
