The Metropolitan Museum of Manila’s “Cue From Life Itself” exhibit reflects on the instinctive way Filipino artists “make do and dream up, transforming everyday forms with intuition and insight, and in their critical awareness of the material conditions of their milieu and ecology.”
Curated by art historian, scholar, and UP Diliman Prof. Patrick D. Flores, the title is lifted from a monograph by artist, educator, and cultural advocate Brenda Fajardo.
Fajardo frames the concept of “aesthetics of poverty through the artist’s responsiveness to an encompassing but transformable world,” the museum said.
The exhibit features the following artists: Poklong Anading, Kris Ardeña, Yason Banal, Santiago Bose, Brenda Fajardo, Alma Quinto, Jose Tence Ruiz, Lirio Salvador, and Mark Salvatus.
