The IDB Staff Association Art Gallery presents Identity, a solo exhibition by Dominican artist Yoce Ramirez. The exhibition features her mixed media on canvas paintings inspired by her search for a gesture that describes an experimental process without defined creative parameters.

The works are not thematic, as Yoce allows the experience of the moment to emerge spontaneously and pursues only what she feels, this goes from social criticism to self-portrait.

Identity is a mixture between ethnicity – from the relationship of space with the quest of the self –. It is the projection of social criticisms currently affecting her country. The identity that a few assume.

Ramirez has a degree in visual arts from the National School of Visual Arts and the school of design at Altos de Chavón in the Dominican Republic. She has participated in many collective exhibitions, including the 2017 Daily Free Contemporary Art Contest. She obtained recognitions by the International Book Fair in the portrait category and in painting by the National School of Arts. Ramirez won 2nd place in the 3rd Competition of Youth for Values and was a finalist in the Cultural Foundation House Theater contest.

The IDB Staff Association Art Gallery, located in downtown DC, was established in 1964 to disseminate the various expressions of contemporary art primarily from Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Now in its fifty-four year, the Gallery is the oldest in the area to have exhibited the work of more than 500 emerging and renowned artists mainly from LAC.
