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.

Loved

6 - 15 May 2021

Secret Fresh Gallery in cooperation with The Working Animals Art Projects (TWA) announces the opening of a new solo exhibition by Pow Marin this May. In this exhibition titled Loved, Marin attempts to offer comfort through his art amid in these difficult and trying times of the pandemic by reminding everyone that they are loved. The artist once again brings his meticulous laying out and detailing of organic shapes and patterns—this time predominantly floral—to surround clusters of linear human figurations. The central figures in each composition depict hugging and embracing, gestures of affection which are, coincidentally, have been limited and discouraged in light of social distancing measures. Through the images, the artist aims to share visual hugs to the viewers and suggest sensory experiences that they may find comforting and pleasant. A graduate of Bachelor of Fine Arts major in Advertising from the Technological University of the Philippines, Pow Marin received citations from several art competitions before bagging the Grand Prize of the 2016 Metrobank Art and Design Excellence for Oil/Acrylic category. His works mostly drawn from personal memories and experiences are vivid illustrations of themes such as gender identity and family affairs, with forms animated by fields of colors and sumptuous patterns inspired by nature and underwater biodiversity. This show is curated by Ruel Caasi. The exhibition opens on 6 May at Secret Fresh Gallery, Ronac Art Center, Ortigas Avenue, San Juan City.

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

Procession of the Slightly Mad

6-15 May 2021

S-Ann Ch'i | Brian Uhing Art Verité presents the two-artist show, Procession of the Slightly Mad by Brian Uhing and S-Ann Ch’i. The exhibition is an unlikely pairing of two creative trajectories: Uhing hews closely to figurative surrealism while S-Ann Ch’i embodies the tenets of gestural abstraction. Their different temperaments notwithstanding, the exhibition showcases how generative and fruitful it is to think beyond the concerns of theme but instead focus on more subtle traits of the painting medium, such as energy, exuberance, and engagement.
