The Museum of Contemporary Art and Design (MCAD) Manila, in collaboration with Independent Curators International (ICI) New York, will launch do it (MCAD Manila) online on 13 May 2021, an exhibition where written instructions by artists are interpreted anew. How this project reimagines the exhibition format as flexible and open-ended is a result of a 1993 conversation in Paris among curator Hans Ulrich Obrist and artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier, and has become the world’s longest running curatorial project since. MCAD joins more than 50 institutions that have re-created the exhibition and will hold its first appearance in the Philippines. In this iteration, MCAD partners with local artists, community groups and its online audience. As a response to global stay at home orders, do it (MCAD Manila) will run both online and on-site. do it (MCAD Manila) launches online through the museum’s social media channels and website on 13 May 2021. The public is invited to participate by responding to instructions from different artists, which will be released by MCAD throughout the exhibition run. do it (MCAD Manila) invites local artists MM Yu, Russ Ligtas, Madge Reyes, Lourd de Veyra, Manix Abrera, Manny Montelibano, Mark Salvatus, and chef Miko Calo for a special presentation in interpreting instructions by Cao Fei, Jerome Bel, Rivane Neuenschwander, Liam Gillick, Hannah Weinberger, Robert Ashley, and others.

Enter exhibition catalog here: http://bit.ly/10DOAPareidolia pareidolia păr″ī-dō′lē-ə (n.): The perception of a recognizable image or meaningful pattern where none exists or is intended, as the perception of a face in the surface features of the moon. (Merriam-Webster, 2020) The portrait is a genre whose nature has metamorphosed through time. The earliest recorded portraits date as far back in history as ancient Egypt, and the function of this artistic tradition has metamorphosed over generations, movements, and eras. Before the advent of photography, portraits were proof of life; that this individual existed, and that this was their likeness. Portraits were used by historical figures as instruments of power, asserting dominance and moral virtues over those viewing. On the other hand, the portrait has also been used as a platform for subversion, critique, and counternarratives. This realized will to become a subject of art is an act of agency. The past century has seen the portrait integrate itself further into society in terms of technology. The photographic portrait has become proof of identity, and the proliferation of social media and self-portraiture has given the viewing public a heightened sense of what it means to become an image. The individual once preceded the portrait; but in the present, the portrait often precedes the individual. Such is the contemporary state of affairs that surrounds the literal depiction of a face. Beyond distinct visual characteristics, a portrait can illuminate a certain inner sanctum of the self that one many not even be privy to. Perhaps it is instinct to see faces where there once were none, and art is an avenue for this to come to fruition. Pareidolia, presented by Galerie Roberto, reckons with the portrait today: what it can be, and what it is capable of. -- DCB

Terminal Phase

Altro Mondo

Terminal Phase

Terminal Space is a group show featuring the works of Pat Santos, Randolf Novis, Jepoy Sario, Aliya Navarro, and Michael Ramos. The exhibit takes inspiration from the medical term that refers to the end stage of an incurable disease. The artists pull focus towards the emotional truth of someone facing the inescapable reality of death as it draws ever closer to them. Each work grapples with the grief, anxiety, and ultimately acceptance of this difficult and distressing period in one’s life. Click here for the virtual tour: http://bit.ly/10DOATerminalPhase

Reset by Lawrence Cervantes

30 April to 22 May 2021

Lawrence Cervantes was born in 1993. He acquired a degree in Visual Communication from Bulacan State University. He’s also in graduate school for a degree in Education Major in Arts Management at the La Consolacion University. Cervantes delves on the mystical journey of soul and spirit. Having been deeply exposed to the religious perspective in his earlier days, the subject of one’s soul is a recurring subject matter for his works. His sepia-like renderings mostly feature people situated in subtly surreal environments. He often experiments with impasto to convey intense elements and subjects in his canvas.
