Thanks to Facebook events, I had the chance to attend the opening of 2 exhibits in Vargas Museum on June 17 namely "The Crux of Things" by Ernest Concepcion and "Filipino Myths and Legends" by CANVAS.
I was 'invited' by the tarps around the Acad Oval which are like snippets of the exhibition by canvas.ph.
|One of the enticing tarps. More enticing are the photos of the artworks!|
|On my way|
|Dalag ang ina|
|Had to stare at it for a long time to get the message XD|
|This artwork is one of the most contemplated in the gallery. You have to see it to enjoy its beauty.|
|Bathala by Dave Lock. Loved this. Can't stare at it long enough because it's a little bit creepy.|
|The Philippine Remembrall! First time I knew about her, and I really want every Filipino to know this goddess.|
|Caption for the painting below. MUST learn Visayan Myth!|
|Magyawen (Goddess of the Sea and the Underworld) by Liza Flores|
|Mishaps in the Forest by Jim Orencio. One of my favorites.|
The Crux of Things
As was stated in the description, 'the exhibit connects with the nature of pseudo religions and myths'. I would love every Filipino to see this for enlightenment. :)
|Made of shaving cream! Amazeballs!|
|Divine Intervention. I love what it's trying to say. Rrr, I'm a fan now, Sir Ernest Concepcion.|
I'm encouraging you, too, to visit for pure awesomesauce with lots of culture appreciation~! It is worth it, I tell you.
