BENEATH THE SURFACE, STRUCTURES AND SCRATCHES
Ged Merino
with support from Galleria Duemila
15 October to 23 November 2014
Bulwagang Carlos V. Francisco (Little Theater Lobby)
Artist talk: 15 October, 4pm
Opening reception: 15 October, 6pm
The Cultural Center of the Philippines presents Beneath the Surface, Structures and Scratches, a solo exhibition by Ged Merino at the Bulwagang Carlos V. Francisco (Little Theater Lobby), on view from 15 October to 23 November 2014. Relative to Filipino’s penchant for diligence, process is integral to Merino’s practice as he employs unconventional methods of image-making. His textile-based works are stitched prints sourced out by rubbing, hammering and scratching onto any surface with texture from among the scattered objects, walls, streets and pavements of his neighborhood in Sunnyside Queens, New York. For the artist, it is a way of collecting artifacts from people’s lives, a sort of archaeological expedition where he sought to record traces of living and thus preserving memories as links to the otherwise forgotten existences, however banal they may have been.

LATITUDES
Mark Salvatus

07 October to 16 November 2014
Pasilyo Vicente Manansala (2F Hallway Gallery)

Artist presentation: 07 October, 4pm, MKP Hall
Opening reception: 07 October, 6pm

13 Artists Awardee Mark Salvatus examines the meaning and symbolism of the camouflage pattern in contrast to how it is often used and regarded. A floor installation uses the camouflage pattern to depict a small mountain range running from end to end of the hallway gallery. Salvatus expounds on the minimal and subtle presentation: “I want to challenge myself and the viewers about how they will perceive the work, and it’s okay to be confused.”

ON LINE ORDER
Crispin Villanueva Jr.

On view until 7 September 2014
Pasilyo Vicente Manansala (2F Hallway Gallery)

In his solo exhibit On Line Order, Crispin Villanueva Jr. obsesses on the permutations of the line specifically on his own patterns as an artist. A kind of going back to move forward, that plays into the idea of process as a line of inquiry. For Villanueva, the line is something that exists as much outside as it does inside the work, both a visible and invisible element of it, equal parts consequence and intention; a versatile and protean and catalyzing conduit for the way it bridges varieties of distance and the way it demarcates shapes and limitations and divides space and time, narrowing the gulf between past and present and extending into perpetuity.

MABINI ART

Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) presented the first in-depth exhibition on “Mabini Art”, a genre in Philippine painting that developed in the 1950’s. Identified with artists who set up shops at Mabini Street in Ermita, Manila, the label eventually acquired a derogatory meaning particularly for its highly commercial nature.
