Reserve seats: member login or guest registration derives from the inner workings of Tolentino’s recent residency working one-to one with five local artists. This final iteration of the project offers signature methods: durational performance, movement, exploration of abstraction and minimalism with aims to seduce the project into its barest presentational form. aligns temporality with radical peripheral gestures: resistance and the haptic politics of the archive, memory, and dependency. Tolentino's dedication to practice offers the body as a landscape, a container of record, and a living archive through the lens of raced, illegible, and tethered lives.
