Artists’ Arrest, Southern Tagalog Exposure and Kodao Productions warmly invite you to Ligalig: Portraits of human insecurity and public unrest, an exhibit of 8″x10″ photographs. It would be great if you could join us on the opening night, July 15, 7pm (Tuesday) at the Conspiracy Bar along Visayas Avenue. It will be on view until August 02.
We set up the exhibit as a discourse contrasting the State of the Nation Address coming up on July 28. Defying the empirical, the official report of the Head of State is a creative depiction with merits in the fiction genre. While the speech may be filled with fantasies, against it we pit silent pictures. Recognizing photography’s power as testimony, keen photographers are witnesses to the everyday life of the Filipino people, to the actual state of the nation.
Featured photographers are Boy Bagwis, Audrey Beltran, King Catoy, Karl Castro, Kiri Dalena, Dada Docot, Chantel Garcia, Kenneth Guda, Cristopher Linag, Nerve Macaspac, Marie Perlada, Ilang-ilang Quijano, Candice Reyes, Luwalhati Silang, Jake Silbato, Alanah Torralba, and Raymund Villanueva.
We are thankful for TAKDER, Dale Diaz, Prof. Danny Arao, and Valyushk Torres, who helped with some exhibit costs.
A gig organized by Artists’ ARREST entitled RAMDAM: SA KANYA N’YO KUNIN ANG P500 SUBSIDY, ATBP. ATBP. will follow after the opening. The gig will feature UP Repertory, Raul Funilas, Roselle Pineda, Talahib, Talumi, Jeff Pagaduan, Rustum Casia, Alex Remollino, Mao Dela Cruz and Noel Barcelona.
This is an open invitation, please spread the word and feel free to bring friends.
See you there,
