The Manila Bang: Art Fest International 2021 accents works by diverse contemporary artists based in local and international localities.
MANILA, Philippines — Organized by Galerie Roberto, The Manila Bang: Art Fest International 2021 is in partnership with Artsper Europe and Art Moments Jakarta. The fest opens its on-site component to the public on December 8, 6:00 p.m., at Festival Mall Alabang.
The Manila Bang: Art Fest International 2021 accents works by diverse contemporary artists based in local and international localities. Exhibitions in this fair look into divergent ways, possibilities or courses of action relating to the visceral, mundane, creative and artistic processes and production.
Central to the idea of the fest is ‘the animate proof of life,’ a phrase lifted from Linda Pastan’s 2011 literary collection ‘Traveling Light’ which untangles the transitory qualities of the mundane, with everything being temporary and characterized by ephemerality suggestive of growth, aging and loss.
Through the exhibitions and expanded programming on contemporary art and culture, the fest explicates the animate proof of life.
Here are the featured artists:
Anton Del Castillo
