RECENT EXHIBITIONS

“NEW WAVE”

Various Artists

“New Wave situates eight artists who engage with abstraction in the digital age. This milieu could be characterized as consisting of a general public which largely regards abstraction in stylistic terms, easily categorizable into the various -isms decontextualized, defanged, and reduced to an orderly collection of formal idioms rather than specific cultural articulations of political ideologies throughout history.”

“UGAT”

Various Artists

“Ugat” features ten artists of different persuasions and dispositions taking the idea of roots, and its various connotations, as their artistic point of departure.

The word “roots” is commonly used in botanical terms, to refer to the part of a plant which attaches to a ground or support to extract and transport water and other nutrients to the rest of the plant. Through its Tagalog counterpart “ugat,” roots share affinities with veins, vessels through which deoxygenated blood courses from various organs back to the heart, further reinforcing the images of movement and communication that roots conjure.

“Paradise”

LEI MANTO

Lei Manto approaches his first solo exhibition with a critical exploration of the Filipino trope of paradise and destiny. Locating his narrative in the confines of his community and upbringing, Manto intimates a glimpse of his life that has defined his art. This includes the negotiations he pursues that come with his visualizations and imaginings. He exposes the anxiety of the human experience through his search for identity, his understanding of the gestures of positions and power, and decisively, through the collective experience of a social group.
