Julie Tolentino (she/they interchangeably) is a Filipina Salvadorean artist whose practice explores durational performance, movement, and sensual practices within installation environments as a way to explore the interstitial spaces of relationality, memory, race, gender, and the archive. Tolentino’s work extends into video, object- and scent-making, soundscapes, and texts drawn from the rich learning spaces of activism, advocacy, loss, and caregiving. Current research includes exhibition and performance collaboration with Stosh Fila and features a collective project with Ivy Kwan Arce that will debut at the Whitney Biennial in Spring 2022.
