Yina Jiménez Suriel
A curator, researcher and Dominican architect, Yina earned her M.A. in Art History and Visual Culture, focusing on visual studies, from the Universitat de València, Spain. She participated in the first version of the Curando Caribe Program by Centro Cultural de España in Santo Domingo and Centro León. She is currently developing research on women and architectural space in the Dominican Republic: Domestic Revolution, Public History, in collaboration with the Universitat Politècnica de València and the magazine Arquitexto. This aforementioned project is based on the thesis that contemporary artistic production is the first intellectual space from which the Dominican built space is problematized. Since 2018, Yina works as the Curator at Centro León, with a strong interest in strengthening the collection research program and developing new strategies to think about Dominican social history from the production of visuals.
