Ligalig: Art in a Time of Turmoil

8 February to 5 August 2017


Ligalig, a Filipino word for “threat,” encompasses the themes that continue to be relevant to this day — threat to life and freedom brought about by abuse of power, poverty, economic and social inequalities, and environmental degradation.  The range of artworks in this exhibition is quite varied — from paintings, prints, and drawings to mixed media and video works.  Alongside visual expressions, selected poems to provide a literary dimension to the struggle fought.  The exhibit also includes a compilation of documentaries addressing memory, or the lack of, and recent history.

It will feature works by Martino Abellana, Virgilio Aviado, Benedicto Cabrera, Imelda Cajipe-Endaya, Orlando Castillo, Charlie Co, Kiri Dalena, Antipas Delotavo, Alfredo Esquillo, Edgar Talusan Fernandez, Anna Fer, Marciano Galang, Emmanuel Garibay, Ofelia Gelvezon-Tequi, Renato Habulan, Neil Manalo, Alfredo Manrique, Manny Montelibano, J. Elizalde Navarro, Galo Ocampo, Onib Olmedo, Jose Tence Ruiz, Pablo Baens Santos and Lazaro Soriano
