“Cue from Life Itself: Filipino Artists Transform the Everyday” at the MET

February 7 @ 5:00 pm - April 4 @ 5:30 pm

‘Cue From Life Itself’ 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 and scholar Patrick D. Flores, the title is lifted from a monograph by artist, educator, and cultural advocate Brenda Fajardo, who frames the concept of ‘aesthetics of poverty’ through the artist’s responsiveness to an encompassing but transformable world.

Featured artists:
Poklong Anading, Kris Ardeña, Yason Banal, Santiago Bose, Brenda Fajardo, Alma Quinto, Jose Tence Ruiz, Lirio Salvador, Mark Salvatus
