SILVERLENS is proud to present +63 | +62, a four-person show of major artists featuring Agus Suwage and Melati Suryodarmo from Indonesia and Geraldine Javier and Leslie de Chavez from the Philippines. This is the first time they will be showing together. Referencing the Philippines’ (+63) and Indonesia’s (+62) country dial code, this exhibition explores how these two next-door countries who are strangers to each other’s cultures, are connected through their own rich art histories.
The exhibition runs from 13 November to 5 December 2018 at Finale Art File.
